Unfortunately, members of Coo & Co are rather overwhelmed with work at the moment :>/
However, we have found a little time to rewrite this pantoum, for Friend Tommo's Challenge :>)



Otters Roll (rewrite)

Late January afternoon,
in North America display
beside flamingo-full lagoon,
the furry river otters play.

In North America display,
within a pen with pond and stream,
the furry river otters play
with eyes aglow and coats agleam.

Within a pen with pond and stream,
they play at raucous water stunts,
with eyes aglow and coats agleam,
while chortling long in tenor grunts.

They play at raucous water stunts,
the swiftest swim and deepest dive,
while chortling long in tenor grunts,
till four o'clock, or even five.

The swiftest swim and deepest dive,
that's just the way the otters roll,
till four o'clock, or even five,
and then they rest on ferny knoll.

That's just the way the otters roll,
beside flamingo-full lagoon
and then they rest on ferny knoll,
late January afternoon.
