Dylan’s poem up for auction


A poem that music legend Boy Dylan wrote when he was a teenager is up for auction in New York next month.
The handwritten poem titled Little Buddy is about a dead dog. It was penned by Dylan in the mid-1950s for a camp newspaper in Wisconsin, where he spent a happy summer.
The two-page poem, is the earliest piece of writing by the musician to come for auction. It is estimated to fetch between US$ 10,000 to 15,000 at Christie’s on June 23. Dylan tells the sad tale of a family’s pet dog beaten to death by a drunkard in the poem.
“Broken hearted and so sad/ Big blue eyes all covered with tears/ Was a picture of sorrow to see/ Kneeling close to the side/ Of his pal and only pride/ A little lad, these words he told me,” goes the poem.
It is signed by Bobby Zimmerman, which was the actual name of Dylan before he changed his name.
