She rises like the dolphin

“She rises like the dolphin with the sea wind in her eyes,

Sunlight casting shadows, like a painter’s pallet knife.”

She'll strike for the horizon

“If you think you’ll hold her in a shallow pool,

Catch her in a waterfall, you’re thinking like a fool.

She’ll strike for the horizon, like a ship out to sea,

Leaving just illusions that look like memories.”
