Maddison Hoyes, Grade 7
Nature, everywhere you look you see nature,
Whether you’re in a desert and you see a dingo or an emu,
Or you’re diving and you swim with the fish and the dolphins,
If you’re in a plane and you watch the soft, white clouds split as you go zooming through the sky,
When you’re in a forest and you hear and see the native birds singing in the morning breeze, then you hear some water trickling down some rocks in a little creek,
If you go climbing and you see a Skippy with a Joey in her pouch drinking its mum’s warm milk while she is eating some fresh grass after the rain,
Then if you look underneath you and around you as you remember hearing about the day nature was made, and then you promise yourself that you shall treasure nature forever.
