We Love You Hope

Never let go of ‘Hope’..the wind whistles her name

The gentle hush of evening shares in her pain

Courage comes to her in whispers…as healing is blessed by the fading light

Fireflies ghost….. like murmurs of the night

Under a wide African sky softened by twinkling stars

Lazy half moon, Venus and Mars

Earthy scents surround her….sultry on the breeze

Blowing words of encouragement….calming her unease

hope with bandagae

Her horn cursed head …..still steeped in pride

And a

A heart full of courage….as death she has defied

Butchering deep….for their ill gotten gains

No thought or conscience on inflicting such immeasurable pain

Caught up in the human web of deceit

And still ‘Hope’ has the courage to stand on her feet


The gilt edged horizon of morning offers an extra lifeline

May the aura of harmony over this magical girl and her kind…forever shine


The emptiness of these hateful crimes….amid deathly silence and shimmering heat

‘Hope’ gives us the courage…to take a stance against this corruption, greed and deceit

Breathe HOPE Breathe

You are an inspiration to us all

Where there is life…there is HOPE….

Let us stand as one….let us stand tall

  2. Hope is the hope for her kind. It’s wonderful to see the response to the awful pain she has and is living through. Wonderful poem.

  3. Yes indeed Hope is hope for her kind and for us. She gives us hope that some day poaching and it’s ill result will disappear from our earth. Hope gives us hope that one day we will learn to respect all of nature. Hope melts my heart with love and at the same time breaks my heart to see her in pain and hurt. Breaks my heart to see such disregard for life from poachers. But I am hopeful for the wonderful team that today take care of our HOPE. Be well little Hope -and breath hope to the rest of us.
