Another lovely poem sent in by poet Daisy Proctor:

.

Dear Earth

.

I will miss

the forest owlet’s big eyes.

.

I will miss

The Fire-crown’s long beak.

.

I will miss

The cute Malabar Civet.

.

I will miss

the Iberian Lynx

My favourite.

.

The Hawaiian crow

as black as Halloween

.

The South China Tiger’s

stripes

.

The beaver’s strong teeth.

.

The Seychelle bat’s

deep purple wings.

.

The Maui dolphin’s leap.

.

The Asiatic cheetah’s speed.

.

Suni, the Northern white rhino

died two years ago.

Only one male remains.

.

And I’m already missing George

the Pinta Island Tortoise

now extinct.
