The donkey need some help

There was a donkey
sitting on the snow;
his ass all cold,
and the motions slow;
his eyes all lost
between yes and no;
and the face perched
on the neck bent low.

When I looked at him
did I see myself?
My mama told me once
the donkey need some help.

The donkey didn’t move
So I thought I’d go.
I went to the donkey
and said ‘Hey Ho!’
The donkey looked at me
with a raised eye-brow.
I smiled at him
and slipped on the snow.

When he looked at me
did he see himself?
My mama told me once
the donkey need some help.
