Comments about John Garth Raubenheimer
Song Of The Shwale
I sing the song of the sad shark-whale,
whose tender eggs roll softly in the foam,
as nostalgic turtles sip the nectar from her fins
and dawn soothes the waters with a fiery comb.
The silver crabs who night-long serenade
her tearful splendour with vibrating glands,
with pale lanterns in their claws go scuttling away
to extinguish themselves in the ash-grey sands.
