The Under Water City by Mya Smith (First Prize)

The sea is clear and blue 
So many baby fish in the underwater zoo
l see yellow angel fish swimming too.
Mermaids passing in the sea weed.
Here come jellyfish to feed and feed.
Coloured coral make a little door.
Starfish are lying on the bottom floor
The sun is shining on the sandy shore.
Deep below, the under water city,
fishes swim and swim by the score.
