A Valentine’s Day Ode to Puget Sound

The animals of Puget Sound I say this to you

I have always been fond of your flippers and gills

Your fur and swishy tails too

My heart swoons at the sound of your calls and trills

Even you, woodpecker, with your annoying tap-taps

And salmon with your furious swimming upstream

All these animal sounds make my heart do laps

And so with a clear eye and strong voice what I say is true

Happy Valentines Day to all of you

Two people wade into Puget Sound at low tide two look for sea life.
