A Poem About Animals

I was sad one day and went for a walk;
I sat in a field.

A rabbit noticed my condition and
came near.

It often does not take more than that to help at times–

to just be close to creatures who
are so full of knowing,
so full of love
that they
don’t
–chat,

they just gaze with
their
marvelous understanding.

– St John of the Cross
