Phil in his new home

My daughter shared this picture, and I thought an ode might be fun. And, so, I adapted one from Pindar’s Victory Odes quoted in part via Wikipedia:

Ode to Phil 

Creatures for a day! What is a fish? 

Where does he dwell? A bit of flotsam 

Is his mortal being. But when it comes to Phil 

A gleam of light given of human gods 

Then rests upon him a watery halo 

And blessed are his days ‘neath the gaze of his Fates. 

(adapted from Pindar’s Victory Odes)
