An Angel and Dolphins to the Rescue

Aunt Eva was the “character” in our family tree As a swimming teacher she had a great love for the sea One summer day she was swimming nearly a mile offshore When she heard something she had never encountered before An angel’s voice told her, “Go back,” but this she did not heed Then she felt a bump; something did not want her to succeed ‘Twas nothing but a playful dolphin that came into view She continued swimming on, bidding the dolphin adieu Suddenly she was surrounded by dolphins aplenty When she heard the angel’s voice again, she surveyed the sea A school of huge, man-eating bull sharks was headed her way She started swimming rapidly, made it to shore that day Although Aunt Eva was not one who would frequently pray She thanked the angel and dolphins for steering her away
*For Gail’s “Touched by an Angel” contest by Carolyn Devonshire, written March 17, 2012 True Story about my late Aunt Eva

    What a special write this poem really is! I'm so glad that your Aunt Eva made it to shore safely that day! That's so scary that she almost got eaten by some man-eating sharks! Your write so eloquently showed alarm and the grace of the angel, who saved her life...as well as the guided dolphins! I thoroughly enjoyed your poem that I have read this evening! I just love your brilliant write! Great Work!!
