Here’s the funny

Thing about ponds

And people when

At first stumbling

Upon one you

Feel giddy cautious

Even but delighted

Oh so calm

And teeming with

Life below the

Surface so in

You go tentatively

At first a

Few toes a

Foot wading in

Now something happens

Either you slip

And struggle to

Stay upright and

Poised or you

Accept the inevitability

Of your embarrassment

And dive headlong

Into the unknown
