The Sea Horse
I always think that the cat-fish and the dog-fish and the sea cow and so on are a bit of a disappointment when you see them. So it's nice that the sea-horse really does look like a horse, or at least a very gentle and perfect knight of the chessboard. We've found out one very curious thing about sea-horses; did you know it's the father sea-horse, the male, not the female, who carries and looks after the babies. So we've written a lullaby for a sea-horse.
On the morning after her bridal night
