The great APE

Be uncertain whether one might run
For you came upon him without a gun
In every probability
It was plausible and presumptive he
Might lash out at you
But possibly
If you kept quiet
And delicately
Avoided eye contact
That he might see
You in a different light and be
Persuadable in the calmest way
To let you stay there
Come what may

He was sage like One could see
preferring his timidity
His size alone intimidating
As my heart and soul were palpitating
But I dare not stare
Nor look away
Just accept his being
And that day
Was one of my best
I have to say
Profoundly speaking
It was clear
Both of us really
Showed no fear
