A father and his gifts
Far below the surface of the sea
and fathoms away from the sun's harsh glare,
the old pearl-diver hides his oysters,
occasionally checking on how they fare.
Seaweed and barnacles are a real threat
to his big dreams for his little girls.
In a few months, if his toils go well,
they'll delight in the luster of wondrous pearls!
