octopus (1)

oh, how in love am i,
with the gentle octopi.
oh how he seems to creep,
effortlessly through the deep.

and when i shook his hand
him in water, i on land,
he asked if i’d come in
and join him for a midnight swim.

together we explored the sea,
the coral reefs, the fish and he
showed me the wonders that he knew,
and they were many more than few.

and so my dearest leggy friend
my poem has come to an end,
but if you ever want to swim
all you must do is ask, im in.
