Animal Kingdom 19 – Donkey: Stupidity

Donkey

Sri Chinmoy wrote a fascinating little compendium on the spiritual meaning of animals which was published by Agni Press in 1973. Today’s poem features the donkey.

Donkey: Stupidity

Donkey, my donkey,
Never do I dare
To belittle or blame
Your stupid stupidity.

I know, I know,
Your stupidity’s head
Loves and serves,
Serves and loves
Man’s eye of boastful fecundity.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
