Emperor Penguins

Emperor Penguins 

Huddled close together
Against the snow and sleet,
Penguins at the pole
Pool their body heat.

They gather in a circle,
Steadfast, disciplined,
Turning toward the center,
Fighting off the wind.

Sharing warmth and comfort
On cold and icy floes,
Balancing their future
Gently, on their toes.

~ Barry Louis Polisar

I like how Polisar uses rhymes to share facts in this penguin poem.  And that last stanza makes me smile. :)
