Early stages of nurture, nature commence Embracing their vulnerability The warmth of parental care Expansion and development Protection from within Safety of the uterus, comfort living Nutritional supply through the umbilical cord Where life has begun There are herbivores ready to run Gestures of giraffes Leaping deer We can but revere Kangaroo offspring, resting pouch The young will latch Preparation for a time beyond Bonding baboons, close knit group Enveloped in parental care Weaned through time, skills combine Destined to change made to adapt Camouflaged cheetah cubs Lion’s thick mane No longer the same Daring displays of dominant males Attainment of adulthood, meet lioness Echoes of elephants, trumpeting trunks Whistling whales, swim in song Advancement in accord, accrued stage Ripened age
