Free Verse Poem

Hopping out
on the land
from the water
on little penguin feet.
Holding a fish
to take to its mate
waddling the entire way
through the ice cold arctic snow.

Joining the rest
in the hunt for survival
evading dangers.
To be able to live
and to be able to breed.
Thriving forever
until nothing lives
the penguins live on
day after day.

Penguin slips and falls
