Come young buoys and gulls, gather all round,
to talk sea life that does here abound
along brown cliffs at La Jolla Cove,
a real marine wildlife treasure trove.
With cormorant and brown pelican
white guano’s rich perfumed smell, you can
be pardoned for feeling surrounded
by birds, while blue ocean waves pound at
rocky outcrops filled with sea lions
and slippery wet seals all tryin’
to roll ashore saving tired flippers
beside sidewalks filled with day trippers.
Pelican armadas sail the sky
looking clumsy as landing they try,
while squawking sea gulls with yellow beak
past leaves and spring blossoms coyly peak.
Reaching far breakwater rock shelf we
watch crazies taking wave washed selfies.
A beautiful day spent with my wife
enjoying La Jolla Cove wildlife.
