Dolphins at Play

I was feeling particularly playful in my poetry when I wrote this several years ago.

Dolphins at Play:

Dolphins play in the wide open sea,

Splish splash—there they go,

Joy at playing together shows in their beautiful black eyes,

They leap in the air—land with a splish splash in the clear blue water,

Leap, leap, leap,

Dive, dive, dive,

Ha ha! Ho ho!

This is what me and my fellows do in the sunny day!

Splish and splash—dolphins we are—splish and splash,

We are dolphins at play!

Hay hay!

Birds of Song

From several years ago, before I took care of Buddy or Birdie. (For the story on them, look in my photos and you’ll find their stories). I do wish I could get a pet bird someday….though not one of those singing birds. Something similar to a sparrow or a grackal.

Birds of Song:

Sky, clear and blue,

Mountains, fierce and proud—covered with snow,

Birds of song, sing, sing along!

Fly, fly away—to your home in the mountains—fierce and proud.

The Animals’ Magic of Life

Another 2008 poem about nature.

The Animals’ Magic of Life:

The sun sets in—letting the moon come awake,

The sunrise comes about—the moon leaves her home,

The animals awake from their deep slumber—coming forth from their dwellings,

They chirrup and yawn and make their own special noises as they rise with the sun,

They scamper here and there—throughout the meadows and prairies—through the trees,

They spread their magic of life everywhere,

The animals rise with the sun,

They settle in with its setting,

And so another day goes by,

Their magic disappears with the coming darkness,

No light of their magic of life shows in the darkness,

It hides itself—fearful of the darkness—and scared without the light.
