Deep down below in the deep blue sea,
Where the swordfish and seahorses swam,
Lived a shark and a crab and bright yellow tang
And all sorts of fish zooming zim and zam.
One day a boy named Mark came along
And jumped in the waves so high.
He went under the water, kicking his feet;
And his arms were spread out like a butterfly.
He saw all the fish swimming around,
Going in and out the seaweed so tall.
“I wish I could live under the sea,” Mark said.
“I’d have such fun! I’d have a ball!”
Mark went for a ride on the back of a shark;
He rode the seahorses in a race.
The octopus let him swing on her legs
And the eel came out of her hiding place.
Mark zoomed through the seaweed with all of the fish
And blew bubbles filled with fresh air.
He danced on top of a white beluga whale
And let starfish hold on to his hair.
When the sun began to set, all the fish were tired as can be.
“I think it’s time I went home,” Mark said with a yawn.
His eyes grew heavy so the shark took him back
To the beach and tossed him on his lawn.
From that day on at lunchtime,
Mark went to swim with his friends.
He was very happy and so were they
And this is how our poem ends.
