A Black Labrador
Wet he shivers waiting impatiently
For me to toss the stick to him once more
As black as coal is his salty fur coat
Dripping in anticipation at me
His bright amber eyes glow forward to sea
Reflecting the love we happily share
This trust this loyalty he gives to me
He knows the enormous secret we bear
Clandestine in the early morning mist
As I dip and dive and flip to and fro
Where is his master to bestow his wish?
I will step forward to honour his quest
Before I know the outcome of my scheme
Anemones grab and hold at my flank
Strange creatures are we as he has four legs
And I have fins and a shiny blue tail
Now two legs comes walking up the shore
The one I want to change me from a fish
Who would guess at my unusual friend?
Me a mermaid; him a black Labrador
