Animal Poems: 15/27
Nature, Animal


© Ian Mole

I saw this giraffe in London Zoo and felt sad to see it so confined.

Giraffe, zarafa, beautiful one.
Fawn and brown marble, kissed by the sun.
A long lick of neck, nibbling on high
Staring at me with your brown bulbous eye.
Hoof-dung air nostrilling all around you
Says that it's safe in your home/prison/zoo.
Unseen savannahs stretch off far away.
Okapi neighbors are here to stay.
Giraffe, zarafa, second to none
Stun us forever, beautiful one.
