One Summer Long Ago part 3

the lonely prey swam  for his life
Now alone with so much strife,
 teeth bared in a snarl of fear I dove for cover
Past Neptune and Apollo and their dead lovers ,
 hoping to lose them in the forest of kelp 
Knowing in my heart I needed help
The whites lazily swam over head ,
Waiting, patiently  waiting for their chance 

Feeling all might be lost I prayed to their  mighty host ,
 Neptune deliver me from your guardians 
And I will toast your name whenever you claim
Quick as summer lightning the dolphins came
 bringing joy of heart and hope to my lonely plight 
The battle raged , the dolphins darted amidst the whites 
sleek and quick , nudging and butting they picked their prey apart
The whites parted allowing me to pass,
 and to the surface as I started
 these words echoed in my brain 
 Don’t come back ,my servants still wait ,
you got your prize but my secrets and jewels remain 
 I guard this place and I wont answer  again 
your pleas for help to stake your claim
