Taiwan Typhoon Fanapi


Typhoon Fanapi,
causing damages too many
in Taiwan southern city.

Thousands of houses and cars,
submerged under water,
causing loss of millions of dollars.

At the peak of typhoon,
the mayor was resting and napping at her home.
None dared to call her by telephone.

At a stray dog shelter
so busy was a teacher,
evacuating the dogs from rising water.

He put the dogs at a higher place.
The down-pouring rain and strong wind, he lonely braved.
For 2 nights, he was with 400 dogs he saved.

He ate dog food to relieve his hunger.
To quench his thirst, he drank rain water.
He is a real dog-lover.

Sleeping mayor and dog-saving teacher.
One is loser, the other is role model.

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.
