DEATH OF A SPERM WHALE

With her calf she dives
Into the darkness a mile below the waves
Where the great squid abides
Ferocious Goliath monarch of oceans deep.

Singing a lilting lullaby to her calf
In the darkness she swims in playful mood
And can for an hour remain down in the deep
Swimming side by side with her son.

[Hata Bildir]
