A Whale in Love

A bull whale swims, under the water top
grazing the surface, to pop his pop
churning sounds all night - all day
hoping to met his mate, and swim away

He rounds the globe, in search of love
sounds echoing in the green oceans waters.
Wishing the currents will carry the sounds,
to every corner of our planet, and out of bounds.

One fine day, The Bull whale, heard a reply
he broke the surface to glance at the sky,
the birds were following high and fast
he followed the sound, and let off a blast.

He dove deep, swam hard, only one thing in his mind
to search the oceans depths, his mate he will find.
The sun came up and so did he, from the bottom of the green sea
when he jumped above the water, all the panorama he could see.

He saw his mate, she was in great shape, and so was he
it was love at first sight, their bodies became one, for all to see.
The crash, the splash of the bodies and sea
were pleasing, loving, soothing, for both were in glee.

A bull whale swims, under the water top
grazing the surface, to pop his pop
churning sounds all night - all day
hoping to met his mate, he did and They swam away

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
