Written for the nesting turtles here in Key West

With flippers like shovels

She digs out a nest

Deeper and deeper

For babies to rest

 

Risking discovery

Upon the still beach

She toils through the night

Beyond the seas reach

 

Never a pause

In her arduous chore

To keep her eggs safe

On that sand covered shore

 

Covered and cozy

Her deed is now done

She heads back to sea

With the rise of the sun
