A Leafy Sea Dragon

I often wish that I could be
a lovely Sea Dragon
swimming so pretty and free

Far far down beneath the sea
a beauty few have ever seen
that’s where I truly long to be

With purple fins and a purple tail
and inside me a rainbow’s tale
a colorful mirage of glistening scales

So tiny and so very small
the slightest tide a major squall
where beauty rides in one and all

Where men exquisite in their care
take on the children’s weight to bear
he keeps them tucked away in there

Nothing can reach his sweet little fry
though many creatures try and try
that Daddy Sea Dragon is very sly

He tucks them in safe and sound
not even gaining a single pound
and Mom Dragon goes catting around

    This is so lovely, Ami. Well done for weaving the facts about the seahorse male in there too. This would make a great little ode at a museum or sea life centre. KL ❤
