The Dolphins’ Song

This is the Song the Dolphins sing, as they fly through the seas and dive through the waves and race through the spray. So wild and free are they, in their leaping and soaring and twisting and falling, that we may forget that these Masters of the Oceans are special friends with us: they let us swim with them, and play with them, and talk to them, and, if we are lucky, they tease us by circling very fast round our  boats, diving under and over us, smiling and beguiling us, until we are all laughing so much we beg them to stay.
