I read the Puffin Poem many many times...to my own children in the early 70's and then to my child care children from mid 70's 'till I retired in the early 2000's and now I find myself quoting it to my great grand daughter...it was written in the mid '40's.

Oh, there once was a Puffin
Just the shape of a muffin,
And he lived on an island
In the bright blue sea!

He ate little fishes,
That were most delicious,
And he had them for supper
And he had them for tea.

But this poor little Puffin,
He couldn’t play nothin’,
For he hadn’t anybody
To play with at all.

So he sat on his island,
And he cried for awhile, and
He felt very lonely,
And he felt very small.

Then along came the fishes,
And they said, “If you wishes,
You can have us for playmates,
Instead of for tea!”

So they now play together,
In all sorts of weather,
And the Puffin eats pancakes,
Like you and like me.

Thanks! Tried to see them in the wild around Kodiak but had to wait for the Sealife center. I could have spent all day there.

WUnderful! It is such a treat to be able to study the details on this unique seabird. I've only ever seen them from a distance here on the northeast coast, so I really appreciate this. Kudos to you, and congratulations on the Blue Border!
