TITLE: My Questions about Kangaroos

ou asked me to write about New Zealand or Australia.
These countries have never been on my “ports of call”.
But, I have visited many different, new places;
And without exception, I’ve really loved them all!

I’ve dreamed of visiting the beautiful land, Australia;
Hearing of many gorgeous things that are over there.
Yet, seeing live kangaroos, hopping and running so free,
Would be an answer to some questions, and my prayer.

I’ve seen pictures of their babies, peaking from mother’s pouch;
And I wonder how “Mom” can carry them about.
How much gravel do they leave in their own untidy room,
Carried in on baby’s feet, hopping in and out?

And, what if they get the “sniffles”, and cough from a bad cold,
Or, cut their foot as they hop outside the pouch fold?
Does papa kangaroo help with all of those dilemmas?
Please answer my questions, if I may be so bold!

I know my God cares for them, whether here, or whether there;
Because He created each one for a reason,
And He never makes an error or the smallest mistake.
Giving each of us special animals and seasons.

So, if I never get to see Australia’s special land
Or any of the wonders that are over there,
I’ll rest in the security of my trust in our God,
And just leave all my thoughts and questions, in His care!

I really had to grin at your 2nd and 3rd stanzas about the baby kangaroos.

Cute poem--a second edit of the meter would make it even better.

I enjoyed this entry--lots of fun.

I enjoyed reading your poem. It reminded me of something I might read in a children's poetry book.

Ha ha! Very cuyte, Verna. Kangaroos are amazing creatures. Thanks for the kind critique. Sometimes my vocabulary shrinks when I can't remember new words, and then I need a thesaurus to help! I still need to learn more words though. God bless!
