    The dolphins in the poem symbolize oppression and lack of freedom. Freedom is every person and animal’s basic right. They should be free in their own will in the world. By capturing the dolphins and taking them away from their natural habitat and forcing them to live under the control of a man shows how oppression against the weak works. The dolphins are unable to put up a fight against the humans and hence, they are being controlled by the humans. Despite being kept in their element, the dolphins are not happy; “We are in our element but we are not free.” By being denied of freedom, no one can be happy and neither are the dolphins happy. They keep on reminiscing the times when they were free under the sun and the moon.
