  77.     

On The Retirement Of Ian Thorpe

I heard on the radio in the sports news today
That Ian Thorpe the great swimmer has give competitive swimming away
A winner of nine Olympic medals five of them gold
Of his greatness in story and song we've been told
Australia's greatest ever swimmer if not the World's best
He was never found to be wanting when put to the test
But at twenty four years he said enough for me
At the World Championships and the Olympics him we'll never more see
At the prime of his life one might say a young man
But at top competitive swimming top swimmers do not have a long span
In the World of swimming he is an all time great
And his world Championship and Olympic victories Aussies did celebrate
A world renowned swimmer since he was a boy
And life after competitive swimming may he now enjoy.

Iron Chains

Chorus:
we'll soar like an eagle, we'll run like the wind, we'll swim like the dolphins in the dim-litted sea, yes you and me we are free.

the iron chains are broken my spirit is free,
my soul will be joyous as long as you are with me.

Chorus:
we'll soar like an eagle, we'll run like the wind, we'll swim like the dolphins in the dim-litted sea, yes you and me we are free.

over the grassy hill through the starry sky, we'll be together for all of our lives.

Chorus:
we'll soar like an eagle, we'll run like the wind, we'll swim like the dolphins in the dim-litted sea, yes you and me we are free.

my arms grtow heavy, my wings fold down, your by my side as i land on the ground.
we look up together at the big moon-lit sky and we know forever it will be you and i, you and i.

Chorus:
we'll soar like an eagle, we'll run like the wind, we'll swim like the dolphins in the dim-litted sea, yes you and me we are free.

My Fish (Lance The Lonely)

They swim around merrily in their tanks throughout the day
In my big tank there is two oscars a pacu and a blue guoarmie on display.
Under the log you will find the chichlid, perhaps the plecostomaus too.
The next tank brings you the Koi's as they root around for food.
One is calico, one is silver, one is yellow.
Their tank mate is a shubumpkin, a laid back fellow.
Over in the loner tank swim the beta and the snail.
The Beta is a beautiufl red, snail never leaves its shell.
Last but not least we come to the angel fish home.
Swimming with 2 orandas,2 tetras and a glass fish.
Lets not forget Jaws, other few plecos and the catfish.
I hope you all enjoy my little fish poem.
If you dont have any fish you should go out and get some.
Unlike dogs and cats they dont bark or make noise.
They just swim around in their tanks. Enjoy.

The Salmon Are Swimming Upriver

The salmon are swimming upriver in the cold gray damp of the dawn
To the gravel beds of the rapids to dig out their spawning beds to spawn
November is their breeding season in the cold and wet Northern Fall
When yesterday's flood is subsiding they are answering to Nature's call.

The salmon are swimming upriver by Nature they are duty bound
They jump waterfalls on their journey to get to their high breeding ground
Their urge for to breed is upon them their numbers they must multiply
To insure the survival of their species their natural urges they cannot deny.

The salmon are swimming against the current a hundred kilometres or more
To the high gravel beds of the river that journey to the Atlantic shore
They risk the gaff and spear of the poacher so that their species will survive
And the main reason for their survival is their natural sexual drive.

The salmon upriver are swimming with the chill of late Fall in the air
Through old fields and along by hedgerows by cold winds of their foliage stripped bare
They swim on against the strong currents without even one thought of fear
Of the fate that might even await them death by the poacher's gaff or spear
