Hounds of wonder, hounds of flight,
Hounds with vision keen of sight,
Proud and loyal, prized by royals,
And by those of lesser might.
Afghan Hound is what I am named,
For my glorious coat I am famed,
Friend to shepherds, foe to leopards,
King of dogs I'm proclaimed!
I'm Saluki, Afghan's close kin,
From the dawn of time I begin,
Fringed or smooth, with lightning moves,
Of Persian origin.
Pharoah Hound is last of these three,
Tombs of kings give testimony,
Timeless gaze, reflecting days
Of pure antiquity.
