*****

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.

Spring poetry

*

Sunbeams touch the cooled down ground

the skies turn blue, I hear the sound

of birds in trees and on the wire

the twitters which I do admire.

*

The plants turn green and so do trees

I see the wasps, flies and the bees

flying, humming to the flowers

spring time does have all these powers.

*

Word awakes and colors spear

nature seems to reappear.

I feel the warmth right on my skin

the circle of life is to begin.

*

Here I see the growing corn

there I see some babies born.

A litter full of baby cats

of dogs or rabbits, even bats.

*

It’s beautiful to look around

plants, animals and things I found.

Spring is great in every style

It makes me sing, and dance and smile.
