I Am Waiting
by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

I am waiting for my case to come up
and I am waiting
for a rebirth of wonder
and I am waiting
for someone to really discover America

of a new symbolic western frontier
and I am waiting

Away, Melancholy
by Stevie Smith

Away, melancholy,
Away with it, let it go.

Are not the trees green,
The earth as green?
Does not the wind blow,
Fire leap and the rivers flow?

Save The Wildlife
by Lucy Doyles

See the seals swimming away
The little foxes as happy as ady
The baby birds flying above
The lions resting with their cubs

The animals seem all so free
untill the humans kill as much as can be
why all this cruelty can't it stop
What have they done, what is up?

you must live with great seriousness
like a squirrel, for example--

The Newcomer
by Brian Patten

El animal sin identidad
by Humberto Gómez Sequeira-HuGóS

Estoy en el fondo
de un ojo de agua
sin mi luz celular.

Disuelto sin tiempo,
siento que soy el sueño
del animal sin identidad.

They can’t hear me cry,
They shy away from my tears,
It’s within these caged walls,
I face my worst fears.

I long to be free
I want to run,
I want my freedom,
I want the open sun.
