Sea Poetry for Teens

As mentioned on the previous post, everyday, during this week, a poem/quote about the SEA is read in every English language class. The following are a selection for teen students. The image credits for the first picture go to Urban Times Facebook Page and for the second

A Fish I Wish
Oh how I wish I was a fish to swim in the deep blue sea.
I would swim up and down and all around in laps of two or three.
There would be no rules to follow, all fun down here.
On land rules are trouble, a real pain in the rear.
Humans are not wanted down here and for them you must always look.
For they only want to see us fish dangling from their hook.
A sea full of wonder, yes that's the life for me.
Oh how I wish to be a fish and one day soon I'll be!

Maggie and Milly and Molly and May 
maggie and milly and molly and may 
went down to the beach (to play one day) 
and maggie discovered a shell that sang 
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles, 
and milly befriended a stranded star 
whose rays five languid fingers were; 
and molly was chased by a horrible thing 
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles: 
and may came home with a smooth round stone 
as small as a world and as large as alone. 
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) 
it's always ourselves we find in the sea
