Poetry is an art form in words. The putting together of words in new and unexpected ways, sometimes in rhyme. Poetry can be a wonderful way to express feelings for wild animals and connections with the natural world. This new section of Born Free’s site is devoted to wildlife poetry.
Virginia McKenna OBE, Born Free’s Co-Founder and Trustee, said: "It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that two of our wonderful poets – Richard Bonfield and Patrick Gordon-Duff-Pennington – whose poems you can read on this page have sadly passed away. Somehow I feel this will give their poems even more meaning."
