Thummel: The Tunny and the Dolphin

A tunny swam out into shallow water,
A dolphin pursuing eagerly sought her.
A huge ocean wave threw him on the dry laud,
No one being near him to lend him a hand.
The dolphin, per chance, by another huge wave,
Was landed beside him to share the same grave.
The tunny seeing the dolphin at his side,
Ere death closed his eyes to the dolphin he cried
"I die content, truly glad am I to see
My enemy's death blow was given by me."
