The Sea by Cooper Whelan (First Prize)

The sea is a grave for boats
Clashing against rocks
Like a tiger striking its prey,
Swishing and swaying
Dragging boats to their grave.

Splish splash,
As boats sink down
To the depths of the sea,
Rip, crack – the sails are breaking
Sending boats to their grave.

The sea is a grave for boats.
