Lenya Ball-Vant, Grade 5, Collingwood College
1st in the 'Beyond Words 2015' competition
Ever giving, sometimes taking,
Around the rocks, waves are breaking,
Sparkling blue, deep sea green,
Brown as mud, clear and clean.
White foam horses riding high
Controlled by the moon, up in the sky.
Beautiful coral, free from harm,
Sparkling like a diamond charm.
So are the wonders of the sea,
Showing us that one place is free,
Free from the world that we have made,
Free from the world we have betrayed.
