My mum loves me for she keeps
me close as I play in the sand and scrub
in the tall savannah grass.
I drink from her when I am hungry,
she gives me shade when the day
is hot and she keeps me warm next to her when
the night grows cold.
I am not afraid of the dark,
for me and mum share the sunset
and share the rising sun just as we share
in adventures that we alone
know the story of.
Let no animal get too close,
for I will prove to her that I can protect
us both just as well as she does me.
For I am a brave little rhino
and there is no one fiercer than me.
