Colin Ian Jeffery is an established English poet and novelist with world-wide reputation, his books can be purchased from Amazon and all good bookshops. He was seven, a choirboy, when he became entranced by poetry after hearing the priest read the twenty-third psalm. The beauty of the words struck his soul like lightning, and his Muse began to sing. He then found poetry was being read on the BBC radio Home Service and would listen in awe and delight to such poets as Dylan Thomas, John Betjeman, and Ted Hughes.


Trigger Warning

Superb hunter on snow and ice
Roaming frozen seas
Polar bear prowling its domain.

Hibernating hidden under snow
Sleeping the winter away alone
Mother bears giving birth.

Emerging with cubs
Teaching them how to survive
Wandering the harshest terrain on earth.

Hunting over freezing landscape
Seeking prey, mostly seals
Basking beside ice holes.

Man the greatest enemy
With unbridled global warming
Melting away kingdom of the polar bear.
