Read in October, 2008

It is bilingual. It has a "mission": to document and animals in the Iguazu Waterfall rain forest so that the readers might be aware of the diversity and also the dire situation they are in so maybe children would grow up to be natural conservationists.

Except that -- these poems do not "inspire" anything in me:

Examples:

HUMMINGBIRD

I flit
flit
flit

I pick
pick
pick

many flowers
I'm a flower-picking
hummingbird

PARROT

I have
a multicolored
breast

and a very
loquacious
little beak

LIZARD

in a dangerous
escape I lost
my green tail

but as a lizard
I can still
grow it back
