Can you help me find this poem? Does it exist?

I think I remember from school a poem about the beauty of black animals. Or do I? Google just got me to "The Raven" and "The Black Cat." Is there such a classic poem? Am I just misremembering "Pied Beauty?" Anybody know what poem I might be thinking of otherwise?

To a Black Greyhound?

-Julian Grenfell, early 1900s, I think.

If you have no luck, rather than classic poetry I'd poke around (often quite awful) contemporary animal rescue poetry. There is a prejudice against adopting black dogs and they are put to sleep at a much higher rate, so that's why I made that connection.
