The Ocean - A Poem By A 14 Year Old Boy
The waves trickle along my toes,
The soft ocean sprays across my nose.
As the ocean waves at me,
And the sand greets the sea,
The fish swim free,
And shells wash up by me
As the day ends to rest
The sunset does its best
Setting on fire the lively waves
Colouring orange the nature he saves...
I close my eyes so tight
I can barely see light
I breathe deeply
The wind blows
The waves whisper to me, calling me to the soft sand.
The water sweeps over my feet, surrounds where I stand.
OUT of the darkness, fretted sometimes in its sleeping,
Jets of sparks in fountains of blue come leaping
To sight, revealing a secret, numberless secrets keeping.
Ocean, pray, how deep are you?
Ocean wide, how old?
Could I but wander, wander through
Your blue depths, silent--cold!
Ocean fresh clear and blue,
Crystal sand so pure.
Dolphins play here and there,
Jumping round through the air.
Turtles swim day and night,
getting stuck in bottle rings,what a sight.
