A Wholphin's Song - Poem by Stephen Katona

This is my song,
TO THE SEA I BELONG:
I dream of the ocean,
And unlimited motion.
If only you knew,
I'm tired of my view.
I'd love to roam far and wide,
Oh, the joy to decide
Which rivers to navigate,
And choose my fate.

If I could catch my own dinner,
I'd feel like a winner.
How I'd dearly wish,
To chase sparkling fish.
To be able to explore,
What's on the sea floor,
See how far I can dive,
Feel truly alive.
To choose a date,
My own family create.

If I grew wings,
Perhaps I could have these things.
I would dare,
To soar through the air,
Land in the sea,
And cry, 'Yippee! '
Please set me free,
Listen to my plea.
Let your heart feel this song:
TO THE SEA I BELONG.

    Thank you Sunprincess, until I put myself in her position for this poem, I hadn't realized how much I wanted her to be free.

    Love this whimsical fantasy poem! Though I was a little confused on what a Wholphin was until I went back and read A Wholphin's Tale. Such a wonderful imagination you possess! (Report) Reply
