The Elephant and the Shrew

September 17, 2008

From whence came the elephant
The birthplace also of the tiny shrew
Contrasts of large and also small
Dark and light, old and new

Cats and birds and young red fowl
Cawing and purring and singing along
Watched over from above by the wise old owl
A moment in mystery cannot be wrong

From whence came the kind and miniscule shrew
The jackal, the snake, and the tired old man
Dark and evil, perfect and new
Slithering or running, together they stand
