!A Frightful Fear!

Beneath the waves,

the sands of seas,

so gentle-seeming

from above,

are stirred by fear

as predators draw near.

The sea horse is a timid creature

with few defenses ‘gainst

the mighty maws of beasts

who find a tidy morsel

such as he, tasty in extreme!

Will this frightful fear

for he who paralyzed

is doomed not to escape

become extreme unction,

rendering impossible

all future dreams

of sylphs astride

their tiny chargers

all along the coasts

of Camelot ?

Pray, let it not be so!
