Poem of the Day

Polar Bear

Big, powerful white bear,

Lives in Arctic cold,

Strong, firm, white,

Covered in protective fur,

Black eyes, sharp claws,

Hungry belly,

That gnaws away all day.

 

This snowy white land,

That was once your friend.

Is melting away earlier,

Freezing up later.

Struggling to hunt seals.

You need to travel further and further

 

Less sea ice

More walking

More swimming

How far will you have to go?

Only the weather knows

 

Lucky you are strong,

But who knows for how much longer?

Will there still be a place in the Arctic Cold for you?

Or will you just disappear into nowhere?

Karen Hendriks
