Asleep in My Cave

Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 6th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer.
This week, illustrator E. Wright contributed an animated illustration for today’s blog.
 

White Nose Syndrome is a terrible disease that is killing North American bats. It’s really sad. Here is a poem that I wrote about a little bat who is sick.

an animated bat drawingAsleep in my cave all toasty and warm,
I plan to stay through the winter storm.
Dreaming of bugs flying about,
“Squeak, squeak, squeak” all the bats will shout.
But wait! What is this itch?
It wakes me up and makes my nose twitch.
I don’t like this feeling one little bit.
How do I stop it? When will it quit?
I’m awake now. What do I do?
It’s cold outside. Who will help me? Who?
This is strange. It isn’t right.
I’m awake, so I take flight.
It’s too cold for me. Now I feel sick.
Someone help me! Save me! Quick!
