When otters were born,


Mother earth smiled on them,


For she realized they were special indeed.


They had the warmth of a summer day


Hidden in their souls.


Because they were special, she gifted them


With speed.


She showed them to her brother,


The rain god.


He also realized they were special,


So he gifted them with


His love of water.


And that is how


They became


The otters we know today.
