    An Easter Poem

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

    The Donkey
    BY G. K. CHESTERTON

    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.

    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.

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