    An Easter Poem

    Actually, it's more a Palm Sunday poem, from G.K.

    The Donkey

    When fishes flew and forests walked
    And figs grew upon thorn,
    Some moment when the moon was blood
    Then surely I was born.

    With monstrous head and sickening cry
    And ears like errant wings,
    The devilís walking parody
    On all four-footed things.

    The tattered outlaw of the earth,
    Of ancient crooked will;
    Starve, scourge, deride me: I am dumb,
    I keep my secret still.

    Fools! For I also had my hour;
    One far fierce hour and sweet:
    There was a shout about my ears,
    And palms before my feet.

    I simply love this poem, Ecurb, thanks for posting it. At one time I almost knew it by heart!
    "I seemed to have sensed also from an early age that some of my experiences as a reader would change me more as a person than would many an event in the world where I sat and read. "

    My wife had a donkey, named Eeyore of course, who was much beloved in our family. The iconic story of our Savior riding into Jerusalem on a donkey fulfilling prophesy is quite endearing. Thank you for sharing.

    Ta ! (short for tarradiddle),

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami
