Saving Snow Leopards - Poem by Mary Anne Simon

We snow leopards jump along mountains wide,
Grip rocks with front paws to climb the rough side.
Muscular bodies and long tail
Help keep our balance so climbing won't fail.
Huge lungs and strong chests
Help us breathe easily climbing mountains' crests.
Heavily padded front paws
Protect us in climbing, and we use our claws.
Hunters try to kill me for my layered, winter fur.
When my friend attacks flocks, farmers shoot at her.
Protect my fellow leopards by giving them a place,
A special habitat with food and living space.
