Fun-loving and protective, lighthearted, and kind,
He’s someone to rely on. Persistent and strong,
He will follow no orders. He’ll teach what he knows
To all who will take interest. What he bestows
Is the wisdom of living one’s life like a song.
Taking only what’s needed ensures peace of mind.
When great deeds are remembered in this jungle vast,
One name will stand above all – our friend called, Baloo.
One who knows so much freedom is charming in ways
That make sense of simplicity. Seeking no praise,
He accepts it most humbly, as his heart is true
To the heartbeat of nature, relaxed and steadfast.
Jungle beats and jazz music are special delights.
They remind us that we each are part of the score
Of magnificent music composed by Supreme
Consciousness Omnipresent. This real jungle dream.
When lived fully awakened, can offer much more.
One may not find contentment in reaching great heights.
‘Jungle Bum’ some would call him. He takes no offense.
Being firm in his selfhood, selfless he can be.
When danger is apparent, without thinking twice,
Ferocious he becomes and in true sacrifice.
Most of life should be spent hanging out leisurely.
Energy is preserved with the least of expense.
