Teen Poetry Contest Winner for 2008
McCracken Middle School, grade 8
The ocean possesses many secrets.
He has clearly seen the world passing by,
From pirates to fossilization,
To kids just playing heartedly on the shore.
He has distinguished fish and
Has eavesdropped on the conversations of sea birds.
He is the emperor of
All liquids and
If you have a question,
Then ask him,
And he will answer you with the gentle rolling of his waves.
