NPM 2021 - Found Poem 14

Today's poem comes from Strange Creatures: The Story of Walter Rothschild and His Museum, written and illustrated by Lita Judge.

Walter Rothschild and His Museum

unusual boy
spent time collecting
bugs, birds, animals
loved every creature 
dreamed a museum

hired explorers to  
collect specimens from
the far corners 
of the globe
new discoveries! 
beautiful and strange creatures!

crowds lined up to see
the zoological collection 
that forever changed 
our understanding
of the world's creatures
