The hatchling and me

A turtle-hatchling  was all alone,
Beneath the sky, below the moon.
She had no hope finding her way
Till there came the sun’s ray.
Oh! so much scared was she
‘Cause nothing she could see.
In the cool pale moonlight
Not a thing  there was bright.
Her sorrow I really felt,
My heart  did easily melt.
I did a thing that was right
To make her safe that night.
I led her to the home- the sea
And I knew she’d be in glee.
As I sat back watching her track
She expressed a ‘thanks’ turning back!


Inspired by the green turtle hatchlings I saw at Ras al Jinz.
