If You Swam With Me*

You’d see ship hulls
And pirate skulls
I didn't swim with this guy, but he did pop up in Monterey Bay.
If you swam with me.

You’d gain mad skills
In eating krill
If you swam with me.

You’d learn to skyhop,
But not belly flop
If you swam with me.

You’d be preaching
The joys of breaching
If you swam with me.

You could shout,
“I have a spout!”
If you swam with me.

*I'm having a "whale" of a birthday because of YOU, dear reader. You are a gift to me when you read and comment on my poetry. Thank you, I truly appreciate it. 


  1. What a beautiful refrain and what a beautiful spot for a vacation!

    1. Thank you, Liz! Yes, we had fun and the whales were showoffs - lucky us! =)
