Dolphins Of The Cove


In the cove the dolphins swim, 
blowing bubbles, free of sin,
all their play is full of joy
no rough stuff do they need to employ

Perhaps that's why they give us such delight,
leaping from the water as if taking flight,
summersaults made in unison quite unsurpassed,
all our own gymnasts are quite outclassed.

And yet these gentle friends of man,
are still hunted by some folk in Japan,
at the cove in Taiji they are at greatest risk,
a species so gentle they should only ever be kissed...
