A passing

The concept of the loss of someone
Hacks into the heart
Whether an animal
understands the finality
To start
Analysing grief
As a palpable concern
For me is without substance
But I feel that I learn

From animals that grieving
Is apparent
And I can see
Elephants and Cetaceans
How extraordinary
Qualities they all possess
And they do display
At the passing of a friend
And these donkeys On that day

Are showing us how
They are indisposed and
Are set back by it all
You can feel that air of sadness
The braying is their call
Perhaps to a higher being
But anyway for me
Hope does spring eternal
and I trust you all agree
