EXCERPT:

An ass, with relics for his load,
Supposed the worship on the road
Meant for himself alone,
And took on lofty airs,
Receiving as his own
The incense and the prayers.
Some one, who saw his great mistake,
Cried, “Master Donkey, do not make
Yourself so big a fool.



COMMENTS:

The translation is in verse; a head-start on lyrics.
