More on humpback whales

I previously did a blog on humpback whales:

Today, however, the New York Times had much additional information, plus a video which you have to see if you are fascinated with humpback whales:

There is also an article by the author of this article:

This especially has to do with feeding. which involves the harvest of krill.

Also, at the same time, humpback whales are being seen off of the Eastern coast and California's coast, as well:

If you are a fan of humpback whales, these animals will mesmerize you. It's such a joy to see them photographed, especially right now, when their migration is increasing every year by large numbers.

And I'm wondering: could someone write a poem about humpback whales or a song?

Try Crosby Stills Nash & Young - To the Last Whale/Wind on the Water. Beautiful music. Thank you for the beautiful clip. Wish I knew how to put them both together.

Thank you for this, tange!

How about more, especially original songs or poems? For example, the above whale singing could be used for many different kinds of songs, from symphonic to popular music.
