The Humpback Whale by Cadence Ing
Calm and gentle is the Humpback Whale
Measuring about 14 metres, from head to tail.
They swim effortlessly through the water
And migrate to warmer places
So they can have their sons and daughters.
Although not secure in numbers
They are slowly coming back
For the serene and magnificent creatures
Are none other than the great Humpback
The humpback whale by Sam Greenwald
Strong and long
I’ll sing a song
With range and melody
I’ll sneak a peek
If your boat is near me.
The sea I’ll breach
The sky I’ll reach
Then crash right on my back!
It’s quite the sight!
A huge delight!
The jumping… thumping… Humpback!
