As the sun starts to climb high into the sky
It’s g’morning for some critters and for others g’night.
The Canada geese arrive in a gaggle
And splash around giddy, tail feathers a-waggle.
They paddle the canals, their life mate always near
But only visit Elliott Bay for part of the year.
From down in the water to up on the docks
When the weather warms up, the seals belly flop.
With a nervous demeanor and puppy dog eyes
These blubbery blokes are our favorite to spy.
Silvery seagulls love to caw and complain
They quarrel about mussels as if it were a game.
They fly thru the sky and thru the masts they float
It’s fun to admire them, till they poop on your boat.
