Three Goodbyes? By Roger Stevens

Three Goodbyes?

.

1

I am moving very, very slowly
Down the valleys of my mother’s face
And when I’ve exhausted
My salt-less tears
The world will be
A very different place

 

2

I am hot and humid
I smell of life, and of decay
I sing a million songs
I dance, I play
A thousand different children
call me home
I’m getting smaller every day

 

3

I am the fastest on the land
But where I live, the living’s tough
You may think that I
can circumvent the truth
But the truth is
I’m not fast enough

A glacier is a huge accumulation of compacted snow, found near the poles or on a mountainside, where it flows very slowly towards the sea. Most of the world’s glaciers are melting and shrinking as our climate warms up, which is causing sea levels to rise and affects the weather. 2. Rainforests produce oxygen, medicines and are home to more than half the world’s animal species. Organisations such as The Forest Alliance are working hard to save and repair them.  3. Cheetahs, like many animals, are in danger of extinction.
