On we mushed, through the sloppy slush,
The dogs damned near at their end,
And we knew full well the final bell
Would soon with the Aurora blend.
Then Amos' sled, far out ahead,
Broke through the river ice
And tho' we screamed and yelled,
We couldn't help and he vanished in a trice.
"Oh, my!" Stilly said, "what a way to go!
Sunk underneath the river's ice
And tons and tons of snow."

We mourned poor Amos 'round the fire that night
And drank in a sorrowful mood,
For o'er his loss we couldn't gloss,
'Cause his sled had had all the food.
So as we munched on a crispy haunch
That had belonged to one of his dogs,
We were glad we'd found just that one hound
Washed up from the depths below.
