    Conservationists have had similar problems with whooping cranes. Mothers lay the eggs and then leave them irresponsibly. That's why that species is endangered and nearly extinct. 8+5=13, you have fifteen syllables in your seventh line which is two too many. Everything else looks good.

    Wonderful, simply wonderful write you have written here Sara! I like the subject, quite funny really, but also serious as well! Glad your daughter is able to take care of the calf! Great Work!!

    Oh dear, poor Phyllis - it's such a cute pic, though. Lovely write, my friend - I've only ever tried this form once

    This form looks difficult to do but it appears you've done it well. Also does this mean you are a great step grandmother?
