Otters

 

 

 

 

 

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.
