SONG OF THE MOTHER - Humpback Whale in North Pacific


    I am the mother of a whale.

    The whole world loves a mother.

    Please I beg of you as a lover

    To cease from killing one another.

    I appeal on parent grounds

    To men of reason and the women too.

    A baby whale is just as precious

    To a mother and a father

    As a human child is.

    I am a simple being though many

    people could swim inside of me.

    Do you think all your hearts together

    Would equal one dear loving son or daughter?

    Reflections in the water change thier shadows

    Every instant.  Remember me with all the others,

    and Be a Whale, just BE.
