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 devil's 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.
