In my 20s, I lived in London and I was hopelessly devoted to a poet. He was the Lion, and I was the Seal. Those were our precious nicknames.
I would often write little love poems about us, such as this one:
The seal wishes to announce her sincere intention to be with the lion forever and ever
So great is her passionate desire,
that she has stepped out of the grand sea,
and is now heading for new adventures in the warm desert.
She spends her days playing joyfully with the lion,
and at night,
she pads him with her soft little flippers.
Love and Gratitude,
