A Buffalo Of Distinction - Poem by Marilyn Lott

He is a Buffalo of distinction
As he lumbers on uneven ground
He knows that he is special
The handsomest beast around

Other animals of every kind
Move away when he comes close
His step is firm and constant
But he’s as elusive as a ghost

He keeps an eye out for the ladies
And around him beaming with pride
Are his children with wide-eyed wonder
For he has taken many brides

Yes, he is a Buffalo of distinction
He fills up a camera lens
I watch for him on vacation roads
As they make those twists and bends!

    Marilyn,
    You write about little things,
    In your poems lies the life’s ping.

    He's a Buffalo of great distinction, (over hunting) almost caused their extinction
    Through new laws they're safe today, now i hear, their here to stay! *10*!
    Great read Marilyn!
