The two-page poem, signed by Bobby Zimmerman, as he was called before he changed his name, "is a dark and mournful poem, about the murder of a boy's dog," Christie's said in a statement.
"I'll meet my precious buddy up in the sky/ By a tiny narrow grave/ Where the willows sadly wave," the poem reads.
Dylan penned the poem in the mid-1950s while he was a camper at Herzl Camp in Wisconsin.
