Animal Kingdom 24 – Frog: Enthusiasm

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 frog.

Frog: Enthusiasm

Frog, my frog,
Endlessly you jump and jump,
Cheerfully you cover distance,
Proudly you conquer the pride of length.
Who could imagine
That your legs had such spring and strength?
Continue jumping.
In the process of your evolution
And your silver-bright enthusiasm
You are bound to cover
Eternity s length
And sing the song of
salvation-perfection.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
