Why do we spin, Mom? I asked one day.
“Here’s your answer, Joy!”
Because it’s fun
Because we can fly!
We jump so we can see the islands,
The clouds, stars and the sky!
We can see rainbows bending,
Smell and feel the rain,
They call us Spinner Dolphins,
So let’s leap and spin again!
Just then a mother Humpback whale and her
baby, Tootsie, stopped by.
“We heard a tiny human voice, so we spyhopped to have a look.”
“We saw the little one. Its mother was teaching it to sing to us.”
We heard the people say
“We got so excited that we jumped out of the water to say,”
“Nice to meet you little human baby!”
Now our whole pod wanted to go see this
“ Let’s all take Joy to Makua Bay!”
So the whole pod of dolphins and the two
On the way we were joined by our friends, the Spotted dolphins.
We entered the bay and while the boy dolphins
watched out for the sharks,
Now do that in the air! We will help you.
Four big lady dolphins joined together and swam under me.
We all began to swim quickly.
“That was pretty good for your first try,”
“Oh, again! can we please aunties? I giggled.
“Okay, Joy, this time you will fly! Up, up I
went, riding the big dolphin wave.
We were sailing along, in Makua Bay,
We could hear the dolphins singing,
They seem to say,
We are busy right now,
But don’t go way,
And we’ll play with you today in Makua Bay!
The next time I pushed hard on my tail and
rode the wave my family made for me.
“The baby person is singing to you Joy!
In the distance our relatives were heading
into the Bay
All of us heard the little human baby say
“OOhhhhhh! when the mother and
“I hope the water isn’t too cold, my little
Jordyn?” the mother said sweetly.
They swam toward us.
We swirled curiously in circles under the
tiny yellow boat that held the baby.
“Look Jordyn , a little baby dolphin, isn’t it darling?”
“Jump and spin now Joy, jump for Jordyn!”, I
heard. This time I did not need help.
I saw the baby’s face. She was waving her
little arms and throwing me kisses
Go Joy, one more time! Wheeeeeeee, up I go!
“Doooooollllllllpinnnnnnnn!” squealed baby
“Oh my goodness,
Now it was time for the little human baby to
get back into the boat
All of the pod stayed and watched me practice
the art of spinning
And then we sang....
We are swimming along, in Makua Bay
We can hear the people singing,
They seem to say
“The baby’s sleeping right now, but don’t go away”
And we’ll play with you again in Makua Bay
