G. K. Chesterton. 1874–
 
93. The Donkey
 
"THE tattered outlaw of the earth, 
  Of ancient crooked will; 
Starve, scourge, deride me: I am dumb, 
  I keep my secret still. 
  
"Fools! For I also had my hour;         5
  One far fierce hour and sweet: 
There was a shout about my ears, 
  And palms before my feet."
