Dance of the Dolphins

Date Written: October 16, 2017

Up and down; over and under
I watch the Dolphins with awestruck wonder

Their sleek grey bodies glisten, like living pewter

They rise up on their flukes out of blue-green water.


I watch from the shallows as they race through the waves

They are like Children unable to behave

One of the young ones swims to where I stand

As if coaxing me away from the safety of sand.


He swims though the water and nudges my leg

As if saying ‘come and play with me, I beg’

Presenting his Dorsal; he chirrups for me to take hold

The others meet us halfway & I’m enveloped into their fold.


Beyond the waves they each take me in turn

Through the intricate steps that they will me to learn

Back at shore they leave, in a flash of flukes and fins

A rare gift it is, to be taught the Dance of the Dolphins.
