Seal
by William Jay Smith                    Softer than spray,

From the rocks with a zoom!             Before you can utter
See how he darts                        Words like “Dill
Through his watery room                 pickle”
Past crabs and eels                     Or “Apple butter,”
And green seaweed,                      Back up he swims
Past fluffs of sandy                    Past Sting Ray and
Minnow feed!                            Shark,
See how he swims                        Out with a zoom,
With a swerve and a twist,              A whoop, a bark;
A flip of the flipper,                  He plops at your side
A flick of the wrist!                   With a mouthful of
Quicksilver-quick,                      fish!
