Epic Journey – a poem by Kate Rauner

A tiny little bat,Bat
That can sit upon your thumb,
Has made a risky journey
That none have ever done.

At least, none we have ever tracked
Across the wild North Sea,
From Bristol in the UK
Past Holland’s Zuiderzee.
Found in a barn, alas, deceased;
This traveler verifies
Just how far migrant bat
Individuals can fly.

What inspires such journeys?
Their epics they can’t tell.
Let’s offer up some poetry
For the tiny pipistrelle.
