The Ocean

November 6, 2008
By Natalie Sherman, Littleton, CO

Frothy waves of green and blue crash against the sand,
It's perfect curls seem to end.
Resting along the shore as the sun begins to fade
The cool water slips beneath your feet,
Once you take a careful step in.
The blowing wind stings your face, The gentle scents of the sea fill you.
Gazing around at the beauty of the moment,
Wanting it to last forever.

Wow this is amazing! I can hardly believe that a teenager wrote this! Its a true masterpiece. The words flow beautifully, and such exquisite word choice. This author should consider being a poet once she is grown up. Words can not describe this poem!!!!!!
