A BEAVER'S DETERMINATION

In eagerness I turn to Thee,
I have my work cut out for me:  
        To save the earth, no more, no less than that.
The shorebirds and the waterfowl,
The mink, the moose, the ducks, the owl
        The humans: all fear for their habitat.

They're draining wetlands left and right,
Three-fourths of them are out of sight
        And we're the only Force against that sin,
The critter world meanwhile is fearing
Swamps and bogs are disappearing
        And the threat of drought is genuine.

God/dess, strengthen my teeth today
That I may gnaw despair away
        Creating dams for marshes, fens and bogs,
So kits and kids of every kind
Tomorrow will good lodgings find
        Saved by a wall of vigilance and logs.



from the forthcoming book Prayers of 100 Animals A to Z, by William Cleary
