National Poetry Day Message Poem by Lily Courie

Dear Ocean,


The sand between my toes,

The wooshing sound of your waves

Clashing against the rocks.

Every day I see boats

On your beautiful, azure surface.

But… I am so, so sorry

For all your fishy friends

That might be getting sick

Because of the crisp packet

I dropped in the sea earlier.
