Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket

A man from Nantucket named Pym
Once spotted where peng-u-ins swim
   Some seals he attested
   Were left unmolested,
(At least, that's according to him.)




I'd rather shine and sparkle in the shallow
     Depths of a pretty fountain
Than wearily swim an ocean dark and hollow,—
     Or climb a rocky mountain.
