Do not leave us


Do not leave us
Do not be extinct

Be a child
In nature

Sleep, as long
As you wish

Play

Run as fast.

The herds of wild
Boars, pass by

Tiger
If you are not there,

What we gonna tell
Our children
About you

If

You are
Not there,

Who rules the jungle
And snow?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Established in 2010, International Tiger Day! aims to raise awareness of the fact that tigers are facing extinction. 'A hundred years ago 100,000 tigers roamed in Asia, ' explains The Independent. 'But now only 3,000 survive in the wild.' The culprit? Poachers, mostly.
Tigers are marvelous creatures. Have a look at some of these stunning photos to celebrate. @ Mother Jones
