*****

Tall and fluffy, sweet and cute

To kids he is the perfect hoot.

Moving slow, but smart and clever

He can’t be drawn in colors ever.

 

**

Mom’s are not tender, but quite hard

They raise their kids, educational and smart.

Even though babies are tiny at birth

With 18 months they know what they’re worth.

**

 

Unimpressed by meat who knew,

they’re eating plants, trees and bamboo.

They’re Asian, still their eyes are round

They can swim and climb but live on the ground

**

When they eat, they use to sit

They move deliberate when they flit.

However cute they’re still quite strong

And can be dangerous, don’t get it wrong.

**

They don’t sleep when it gets cold

They just move lower, they’re that bold.

Their habitat shrinks, it’s sadly linked

that they might soon become extinct.

 

**

If humans don’t give them huge advance

This cuddly friend won’t stand a chance,

to survive on Earth equal and fair;

Our black and white, beautiful Panda Bear.

    • I’m happy to hear this, Allan. 🙂 This one took me quite a while to write. I didn’t know too much about Pandas and first had to read a lot. I wanted to write this poem because I think they’re so cuddly. 😀
