"The otter's charm, so little known
Holds no ceptre, has no throne
Lives in groups or on his own
Relishing his dearest stone.

Dirt upon which otter rests,
In a coat of comfort drest,
The big wide river makes him guest,
Its wealth upon the beast bequests.

Though in the waves at home is he,
and on the surface equally,
In either must he cease to be,
Split half and half, the otter's see.

Hunger drives him to the depths
where Lord Above grants him a fest,
must yet come up to catch his breath,
must climb back out, of strength bereft.

His charm is in simplicity,
and aptitude and mystery.
Not status or celebrity,
not profit or utility.

No! He lives unseen, unheard,
in the privy spots of Earth,
far to which no man traversed,
so his beauty stays covert.

As between homes his home is split,
as between each of both he flits,
so too his self and soul is split,
two distinct natures they emit.

One like a terrifying beast,
brutish strength, sharp claws and teeth
craving only tasty meat
inbetween his webbed-toed feet.

The other busy frolicking,
nimbly diving, scampering,
juggling, rolling, or enjoying
upon his breast the sun-rays shining.

Where both of these are married, splendid!
Grace and vice, in one, ascended.
In the otter they are blended.
This Almighty God intended."

I normally don't write poetry, and I hate writing in iambic pentameter, but I felt that if something deserved a proper poem, it would be otters. Please excuse it being horrible

Otter how gracefully wondrous are you
for never has there been such elegance
do feast your eyes but please do leave him be
for the good he does in nature is clear

Found a nice poem:

A Dedication to Otters
by Deanne Wagner White

"Cunning like a fox
And playful like a puppy
Sea Otters are very, very lucky

Long and sleek, their days are spent
Swimming in the ocean
Flowing gracefully through every motion

Otters also love to munch and snack.
Born with 32 strong teeth,
They enjoy cracking into their daily feast.

Always game for play,
Otters make the most of every day
Floating on their backs
And playing peak-a-boo with their paws.

But most of all,
They love the company of fellow Otters
Forming rafts and pursuing adventures.

Happy Otter Spotting!
Time to see an Otter with your own eyes.
At the zoo, at the aquarium or on the bay.

I know these amazing creatures will make your day!"

Nimble dash to waves
Vanishes beneath water
Freedom for Otter!

these are all very lovely poems

Otters can seem shy, when really they are bold.
Otters can be brave, when really they are scared.
Otters can be vicious when they just want to cuddle.
But more than anything otters come to break you from your bubble.
