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

The Descent Of Alette ['The Water' 'Of The River']

'The water' 'of the river' 'was mild-temperatured,' 'the current
gentle' 'I soon began' 'to swim—' 'in a moonless,' 'starless darkness'
'The sky held no clouds—' 'no luminous' 'spheres existed here'
'Yet the sky was' 'a sky; ' 'for the river air' 'was fresh & sweet'
'Then,' 'as I swam,' 'the others I contained—' 'my companions
from the subway—' 'weightlessly' 'emerged from me,' 'looking
shadow-like,' '& quickly' 'solid-bodied' 'began to swim with me'
'I never really' 'saw their faces' 'We swam quietly,' 'concentrating,'
'our motions almost synchronized' 'In the distance sat' 'small yellow
lights' 'where presumably' 'the other shore lay' 'Partway across'
'the river,' 'something else, a substance,' 'a state of being,'
'a thick noxious' 'distress' 'in the form of' 'a gray cloud,'
'welled up within me' '& left my body' 'from a point along' 'my spine'
'The cloud' 'hovered near us' '& so we turned onto' 'our backs to
watch it' 'It was full of' 'ghoulish faces,' 'phosphorescent' 'death's
heads; ' 'one skull grew large' '& open-mouthed' 'It had long' 'glowing
hair,' 'screamed as if' 'in terror,' 'then spoke' 'to me:'
' 'We are dying' 'You are killing us' 'killing us'' 'The cloud exploded'
'into greenish flame' 'which was soon consumed' 'by darkness'
'We turned over' '& resumed' 'our swimming'
