 The Donkey
  

The Donkey

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

 

Fool, for I also had my hour,

One far fierce hour and sweet,

There was a shout about my ears

And palms before my feet.

 

 On the next day the large crowd who had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took the branches of the palm trees and went out to meet Him, and began to shout, “)Hosanna! BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, even the King of Israel.” Jesus, finding a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written,

FEAR NOT, DAUGHTER OF ZION; BEHOLD, YOUR KING IS COMING, SEATED ON A DONKEY'S COLT." -John 12:12-15 (NASB)
