    This poem is ONE of may favorites, its by E.J.Pratt. I like it because when you read it you actually get the sense of a shark swimming through the water. It's really cool.

    "The Shark"

    He seemed to know the harbour,
    So leisurely he swam;
    His fin,
    Like a piece of sheet-iron,
    And with knife-edge,
    Stirred not a bubble
    As it moved
    With its base-line on the water.

    His body was tubular
    And tapered
    And smoke-blue,
    And as he passed the wharf
    He turned,
    And snapped at a flat-fish
    That was dead and floating.
    And I saw the flash of a white throat,
    And a double row of white teeth,
    And eyes of metallic grey,
    Hard and narrow and slit.

    Then out of the harbour,
    With that three-cornered fin
    Shearing without a bubble the water
    He swam-
    That strange fish,
    Tubular, tapered, smoke-blue,
    Part vulture, part wolf,
    Part neither- for his blood was cold.

    Hope you enjoyed!!
