“Gone are those days! “, grandma wailed from core,
woods deep, all in exact share harmony!
deer, bear, elephant, sparrow, cuckoo, more…
rain full by season, fires when dry, days funny!
unrivaled in might and power, only by nature we reduce,
heat and fun all through, our eyes never miss on prey,
by instinct we live, boundless within bounds, grace!
“Dare”, Grandma breaks off, nature rules we cry,
endangered are we, sanctuaries our habitat,
“what should we dare for?”, really perplexed,
ethical value our only basis, freedom lost,
our hope? men and women--the learned.
