— Bonnie L Molay George
Hello little hermit crab, you back-packer of the sea,
You trigger a thought of Gregory
And a story he once told to me—
Of vacationing with Michael
Under a hot Bahaman sun,
Swimming, diving–long days full of fun.
He told how he dove down
And gathered some shells
To take home and remember his stay,
Shined up the prettiest one–
Put it down and it walked away!
