To the harbor Judith went,
her umbrella well in hand.
Departure time had come;
had went and she was wet

for it rained cats, and dogs,
and wombats, and ocelots,

and toucans, and hedgehogs
and a couple pear tree partridges.
The steamer churned and in it’s wake,

it kicked up the creatures of the deep:
Squids and eels, whales and seals,
Catfish and halibut. To her credit
Judith caught a fish!
At the harbor by Judith Clay
