From; "Five Score More Tails From Off Shore With Blundering Fish Antics Galore" (Unpublished)
Some weeks ago I would never believe
that a guest who had left could cause me to grieve.
At most, a few days and I need a reprieve.
I usually give praise when I see them leave...
But a curious thing happened this time around
when a glorious being came to my sublime ground.
This oblivious fish, who wished not to be found,
still twists in anguish on the ground I now pound.
"The song of the mermaid" still rings in my ears!
Like a long "Happy Birthday", celebrated for years.
Joyed, then annoyed and brought almost to tears
but buoyed by knowing another visit soon nears...>-=^;>
