A Villanelle of a Day Spent Well

The shimmer of the ripples on the bay,
safe for an outing, condition a light chop,
You're sharing your domain from home to quay.

Disclosed now, the temper of the day,
great for sightseeing, and perhaps to shop.
traverse the shimmering ripples on the bay.

Joining, by your hospitality to play,
fascinated by birds, water or treetop,
sharing your domain from home to quay.

With guides, exploring wonders of the day,
see the pelicans right angle dive and drop,
in the shimmer of the ripples on the bay.

Sighting dolphins, then more; see them play,
leaping, diving, tails wave as they drop,
sharing your domain from home to quay.

How can we express thanks for the day?
Reluctant for the enchantment to stop,
the shimmer of the ripples on the bay,
sharing your domain from home to quay.
