Emma Conlan


All I can see is white
Stretched out in front of me
It’s like a heavy blanket
As far as I can see

There are small waddling birds
They are small black and white
They have a set of tiny wings
Yet I haven’t seen them fly

There are grey seals with trunks
I’ve noticed they have some spots
They are quite large
But they don’t do a lot

There are quite a few birds
Not like the ones back home
With all these animals around
I don’t feel so alone

Then I realise where I am
With all these animals and birds
I am in Antarctica
At the bottom of the world.
