Letter To An Otter - Poem by Nate Flying Owl

Lively Otter, playful companion
Have you had any adventures
In the years since we last met
That are worthy reciting in verse?

What pleasures have you encountered
In the splash of the river's song?
Do you often taste the nectar
Of bountiful diving forays?

Your aquatic agility
Allows all your untainted joy
To flow throughout your body with ease
And I am envious of you

How can your joy be untainted
When so much darkness runs rampant?
Is this eternal merriment
The result of a simple life?

    I love it, and I am so pleased to find someone who is not totally besotted with romance. Read mine - I Cannot Return - about life in the North.
