A Young Woman Trying To Save The Whales

A Young woman trying to save the Whales in old Port Fairy Town
A volunteer for Greenpeace she did not seek Earthly Renown
She asked me to become a Greenpeace Member for a dollar a day
But a dollar a day I could not afford that does seem sad to say.

She is trying to save the great Whales from the worst possible fate
I could not afford to help her though her cause is surely great
Not every day of my life one like her I do meet
So brave and faithful to her cause and one without conceit.

More than six billion people on the Planet that does seem a lot to me
And so close to extinction the great mammals of the sea
Which makes the young woman I met in Port Fairy a special one indeed
In her fight to save the great Whales I hope she does succeed.

A dark haired beauty in her late twenties she said she had a son
I could not help her cause in a financial way only say to her well done
For such a great and worthy cause she gives of her time unselfishly
And in my memory she is one who will remain with me.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
