Animal Kingdom 27 – Horse: Sacrifice

horse

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 horse

Horse: Sacrifice

Horse, my horse,
I envy you.
I mean it, I really do.
Your life of constant and complete sacrifice
Is far beyond the height
Of all earthly and heavenly price.
God barters His Eternity’s
Heart-gratitude
With your immortality’s
sacrifice-plenitude.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
