A timid creature far from public view,
It's home the forest slopes, it's bed the leaves,
Its drink magic waters, its food bamboo.
Peaceful solitude with the birds and trees.
Hidden by stems its life mostly sleep
numbers declining hunted for its coat,
mystery like mist which coats valleys steep,
It lives near other mammals like the goat,
Markings of a badger, black around the eyes.
Its fur good protection from the cold snow
Humans helping it otherwise it dies.
Its home destroyed nowhere to be seen,
Hoping that its torture has been a dream.

A fine ode to a wonderful creature. It is sad that man endangers everything "he" touches it seems. Thank you, Katey. Love and peace,
