The Nightingale Sings
bottle nose dolphin, white tailed deer
ring tail lemur, collecting cheetah's tears
deer skin, seal skin, alligator hide
eel skin, shark fin, man and beast collide
coyote, buffalo, wild jungle cat
tiger stripes, monkey face, stolen habitat
rein deer, kill deer, gentle turtledove
can't you hear the warning from the One above
snake eyes, cow pies, kookaburra's laugh
change the hearts of hunters with your mighty staff
pheasant feathers, platypus, giant condor wings
hope its not too late... as the nightingale sings

Very nice cadence enhanced by assonance and rhyme both intern and external.

strong mechanics to back a strong subject equals a great piece.

Once, we needed skins to stay warm..Once, whale oil was need for lamps and candles.. Without need, killing is just evil...len

Hello Linda,

The concern for nature was expressed with a beautiful use of words which made for a thoughtful and smoothly reading work of wonder!  Loved it!

Greetings: Peter

...and they are just a few of the many that are on the brink of extinction. Good thought provoking piece.

I hunted bear with dogs just once for trophy.  Never again.  It left a horrible taste in my soul.  Hunting for food, yes.  Trophy no.  For food it is no worse than killing pigs, cows, chickens, pheasants, fish, Canadian geese or any other animal God gave us to eat.  Hunting with dogs ... no.  No sport in that.  I haven't hunted in better than 20 years, but still love to shoot.    Good poem ... makes people think about what they are doing to this earth.     Gene
