A Thanksgiving poem

Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 7th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted this wild colony for years.

Hi Everyone! I hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving! The bats here at Save Lucy had a wonderful day and are very thankful for all the kind people who take care of them. Freda is trying to write some poetry. Please remember that she’s just a little baby. And she’s still learning English. She’s a Brazilian bat, you know.

What I Am Thankful For

I am thankful for mealworms
And waxworms
And moths

I am thankful for darkness
And moonlight
And stars

I am thankful for people
Who feed me
And love me

I am thankful for Save Lucy
They protect me
And save me

By Freda
