The Whale's Song - Poem by Steffi Webster

The ground trembles and rattles my heart
I have heard this sound since the very start
The melody strikes at a chord in my soul,
Without that song I'll never be whole
The water glistens with moonlight so pure
My mind is set my knowlage is sure
A dorsal fin breaks the blue water glass
I stand in silence and watch it pass,
The whales gather in immortal choir
I hope their song will never tire
But soon I know that in years to come
There isn't a chance that the whales will have won
Humans will banish that wordless tune,
As for me, never would be too soon.
I cannot imagine their song to be ceased
If I had my way they would all be released
Now they've been captured they won't come to harm?
To the whale's all this is a cause for alarm
These whale's are the last in the universe see?
The thought is unthinkable if you ask me.
The some people will never hear music of whales
That is where all of the strength of man fails
