When a Man Drowns - nhpeacenik
When a Man Drowns

You never learned to swim - water is cold.
It's freezing before drowning.
Besides, when children drown, they come right back,
bobbing up like flotsam, into the womb.
With men it's not so simple:
Some time in the seal-goddess' blue lair,
Questing in the deep, then back with kin.
A boy baby - who is he?
Watch for telltale signs.
Oh! It's him! Now we know his name.
Help him remember his song.
He was a carver; let him play with the knife.
