Rookie (Sep 12,1941 / Bohol, Philippines)

Bohol Tarsiers


An island in blue Pacific
Where green vegetation terrific
Cool, warm climatic
Indigenous natives abound
Inhospitable crowd around
Endangered species account
Tourists, visitors round about
Various attractions in doubt
Tiny primates gadabout
Cling up and down
On branches brown
Owlish eyes crowns
Teeny ears, hairy tops
Give ‘em lollipops
Wavelike feet flops
Nocturnal alive are they
Daybreak goin’ tardy
While hibernate in day
Tarsier are we
Proud, brave and snub away
When exposed whole day.
Leave tarsier alone
Free as a balloon
In due time homo-sapiens condone

Nhorlandi

Note: Tarsier the smallest primate in the world found only
in Central Philippines and some parts in Indonesia.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
