"The Vast, the Deep, the Wondrous, the Ocean"


The vast, the deep, the wondrous, the ocean

That lies beyond the borders of the land.

Always moving with powerful motion,

Filled to the brim with salt, water, and sand.


Nowhere else can compare to its beauty.

Only it absorbs the pounding of rain.

None hold a candle to her grand duty.

Thousands of ships taken under its claim.


Beware of the sharks, for they might eat you.

Also the currents, where they may carry.

Come to the ocean. There they will greet you.

But if you leave, you may not be merry.


Calm serenity, and deep water blue,

All creatures inside will always stay true.

The ocean depths, many secrets they hold;

Animals, treasure, and stories untold.
