Penguins are fascinating birds; their habits and actions seem so human-like at times. This picture particularly struck me.

Birds of a feather
walking hand in hand,
we’ve traveled together

o’er many years spanned.
Lovers, companions,
’twas always the plan,

so we joined as one
‘neath glowing twilight
of the setting sun.

Not even foresight
could have foreseen
the wonderful life

we have shared and seen.

Written in the spirit of Robert Frost and Dante, I have adapted the terza rima.
