Black Jaguar Cub - Poem by Denis Martindale

A tiny black jaguar cub,
So sleek and so petite,
Was now a member of the club
That made them feel complete...
For now they were a family,
United in one cause,
Content to share their legacy,
Fulfilling Nature's laws...

As if their future was secure,
Their place on Earth intact,
Such that they couldn't ask for more,
Their presence was a fact...
And others, too, would carry on
The destiny they knew,
From generations long since gone,
Born free, not in some zoo...

While land remains for them to roam,
While water flows nearby,
While there's somewhere they can call home,
There's little left to sigh...
Such is the life they live out now,
Till newborns come along,
If Man just lets them live somehow
And never does them wrong...
