Poolside Haiku

Their flickering feet
Dancing quickly round the room
I watch the Thooms spin


Splashing among fish
Four find comfort in coolness
The Thoom and Fen swim


Kind lion poet
Gracefully he's reclining
Entertaining Thooms.


Whiskers a-bristle
vermine hide in darkling bush
There the people prowl
