lost love, sea,

SAD SEA TALE
There was once an old man of the ocean
For a mermaid he had a devotion
But instead of two pins
She’d a tail and some fins
Which precluded their harmonic motion
But in spite of her disparate corpus
They maintained their romance polymorphous
‘Til a herring one day
Brought a message to say
That she’d gone off to live with a porpoise
[Gift for a lady]

cold rock, who's gnashing teeth
beget torn lips and tidy legs
loveless creature clothed in rind
future queen would nary pine
fondleproof my guest
gentle curls no effect
your veinous tarmac brings organasms arrest
abandoned crusades confer pontiffregrets
what! the spectacled porpoise awakens!
the breeze suffocates
the sun withdraws
now must I greet your desire and drain your ample limits

fantasy, fish, food, fun,
My name is Frankie and I am a fish
Who can grant you one, and only one wish
A water-based genie, with a tail that goes swish
Tell me your dreams; I'll serve them up on a dish
Pleasant as a porpoise, peaceful as a dove
I enjoy what I do; my work you will love
When you reach for the moon, I'll give you a star
Dream up an ocean; get a submarine with a bar
Now I'm not a land genie; I won't live forever
So my personal wish before my time's severed
Is to be grilled to perfection when I'm through
And served with a garnish, to delight all of you

emotions, feelings, joy,
Would not my eyes express delight
to see the flash upon the water bright
As porpoise play on mornings dawning day
I follow them and dance along the way
Could not my heart be lighter then a cloud
as rise the sun to lift my sleepy shroud
then greet some friends and smile in unison
we weave our days with love that is finespun
Should now this be my last to walk the Earth
I hope to leave some good that shines my birth
how precious you became in life to me
may memories lift hearts in absentee

Porcupine fell in love with Porpoise today.
Protective quills ready at the stay.
Porpoise dove down with his blunt snout.
Porcupine smiled; in love with the lout.
It can never be actualized Porcupine said.
But I will love you totally until the day I am dead.
Porpoise said, “I feel exactly the same about you. “
They were star crossed lovers, these magnificent two.

2nd grade, appreciation,
‘Spiny rodent Porcupine!
Tell me, Are you fine?’
‘Sure. Tough thorny spikes, all are mine.
I can count from one to nine.
I love blue sky and bright sunshine.
With playful Porpoise, I always dine.
I wish to go for cruise in river Rhine
I walk free in the wood of Pine.
I taste grapes from the yard Vine.
Climbers are planted in a line.
