Seashells - Poem by Philo Yan

One by one, dropping into the sea,
Seashells spiralling down the wild blue yonder,
If the world does not have a sea, what would life be?
That would be something to reflect and ponder.

We will not have sharks, nor dolphins to admire,
We will not see the turtles come to shore to sire,
We will not see the majestic whale in all it's splendor,
Or the magnificent corals bursting with color.

There will be many we won't get to see,
If the world does not have a sea,
What would life be?
We should be thankful then, shouldn't we?
