Hath only anger an omnipotence
Within the lips of love and joy doth dwell
Why else had Baalam's ass a tongue to chide
His master's pride?
And thou (Heaven-burdened beast) hast ne'er a word
To praise thy Lord?
That he should find a tongue and vocal thunder,
Was a great wonder.
But O methinks 'tis a far greater one
That thou find'st none.
