by Walter De la Mare (1873 - 1956)

The bandog
Language: English 
Has anybody seen my Mopser? --
  A comely dog is he,
With hair of the colour of a Charles the Fifth,
  And teeth like ships at sea,
His tail it curls straight upwards,
  His ears stand two abreast,
And he answers to the simple name of Mopser
  When civilly addressed.
