The Otters Play - LGT

Along the walk the suits and sneakers stroll,
so many faceless smiles that tell a lie,
and don't reveal the true and costly toll,
instead with righteous glare they will deny.
We walked one time along this very shore
to skip a stone and watch the otters play
and vowed not to become what we abhorred,
a knight and a sweet damsel we would stay.
But that was all so very long ago
and as the storm blows in from o're the pond
and suits hide there behind their parasols,
it's for the simple times I dearly long.
   Just like the otters we will splash and dive    
   and naked in the rain we will survive.

    Craig, this is an example of a poem I truly loved but it just had a few little punctuation things. I am someone who loves writing sonnets more than I do reading them, but honestly, this is one I adored reading. The meaning of it and the imagery was JUST my cup of tea. Congrats in my contest.

    A good sonnet--a "love" poem, but not exactly. A good comment on human hypocrisy. I would like to use this one in the current text if you would so permit.
