A Coi Moment

A Frog Speaks to his Coi Mistress

Had we but world enough, and time,

This Coi-ness, Mistress, were no crime

We would sit down and think which way

To swim, and pass our long love’s day;

So, while thy willing soul transpires

At every pore with instant fires,

Put aside thy fishy flesh and free

That mermaid queen I know to be.

Then you and I shall blissful lie

Above the water, below the sky

You shall be my lass and I, your lad….

At least,

’til my Wife returns to our lily pad.


With Apologies to Andrew Marvell and his delightful poem
