THE ANTHEM OF THE GIRAFFE

All laud to Thee, Exalted One,
Who wondrous deeds on earth hath done,
Not least divine of which I be,
For I see far ahead, like Thee.

Like Thee, Your Highness, I am wise
And future things are in mine eyes,
My long neck craneth high above
As I peer down with lofty Love.

When I do pray, thou art my guide,
My diction highly sanctified,
Me, Supreme Beast; Thou, Supreme Being,
We oft confer, always agreeing.

Thank God I'm not as others be,
Earthbound and gross, of low degree,
Instead I soar divinely high,
Not made for earth!  Part of the Sky!




from the forthcoming book Prayers of 100 Animals A to Z, by William Cleary
