Roaming the savannahs,
Its long legs stumbling on fallen sticks.
Reaching up to the tips of branches and munching on leaves,
Turning only vaguely as other animals pass.
At last, it hears the gurgle of water,
And the mixture of noises travel to its ears.
Bending over to drink the cold water,
It hears a sound from the distance.
What is it…?
