Letter to An Otter
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?
