Oceans Today ... Oceans Tomorrow
Charlotte Nichol, Grade 5, Star Of The Sea College
Finalist in the 'Writers Wanted No. 2 - 2008 Empowered' competition
In the inky depths of the deep blue sea,
Where the creatures live happy and free.
Schools of fish to great Blue Whales,
Graceful shapes and splashing tails.
Forest of kelp and grassy sea floor,
Squid, abalone and crabs galore.
Creatures lurk in the crevices small,
Hiding from the hungry gull's call.
From sandy shores to rock pools deep,
From frozen ice to tropical heat.
The ocean is home to our underwater friends,
We must ensure that their kind never ends.
