ASS AND STONE

Esel und Stein

A STONE
ALONE
IN A MASS
OF GRASS
STRETCHING AND YAWNING
IN THE YOUNG MORNING
APPEARS THE SUN
ON HIS RUN
AROUND THE EARTH
HE DID BERTH
FOR SOME SECONDS
BECAUSE HE RECKONS
THAT THE STONE -
NO LONGER ALONE -
LIKES TO GET WARM
BEFORE THE NEXT STORM
LIKEWISE THE ASS
WHO DID PASS
BUT STOPPED IN HIS TRACK
TO SCRATCH HIS NECK -
HIS STOUT AND BURLY -
IN THE EARLY
MORNING LIGHT
TO COMBAT, TO FIGHT
THE FROSTY CHILL
ON HIS HILL
WHERE HE WOULD STAY
THIS WINTERS DAY
