Dark Ocean Quest

Fat as a puffer fish,

Inky as a squid,

Stingy as a jellyfish,

Gorgeous as a mermaid.

How many sea creatures can you see?

How to be a…princess

You will need a tiara,

A silver one,

As silver as the moon,

With diamond.

Failing that get a head band.


As I start skipping I slip.

The sharp stones graze my forearm and tears moisten my muddy face,

But I still smile as my vision swims.

Autumn may be just a season to you, but to me it has incredible powers.

So be grateful

For Autumn.
