I've always loved bighorn sheep and used to be stationed by the bighorn exhibit back when I was a volunteer at ZooMontana. They move with the same agility of a cat - it's truly impressive to watch them hop from boulder to boulder.
If but for the span of a moment I swam in the aura of flame;
I caught the rapt secret of being clothed by the Ineffable Name.
And chastened with wonder and strengthened to meet life's beleaguering ills
I went, like a bondman unfettered, adown from the heart of the hills.
