By Maggie Murphy, Wheaton, IL

On the water she sat
Sitting on a lily pad
drifting drifting out to sea
with no one but herself to be
She sat in the middle situating so,
the evil water creatures wouldnt catch her and then never let her go
and in her eyes all she saw
was the ocean reflected by the sky
it went on and on
in a distance quite vast
It was olmost impossible to grasp
but as she went she didnt really care
for in her minds eye there was really nothing there
