Read this amusing poem:

A STING IN THE TALE

I picked up a shell on a golden beach

and asked it to reveal to me

the secret wonders of the sea

the mysteries that seemed out of reach.

I held the shell close in order to hear

its stories of rolling waves,

of mermaids and treasures in pirate caves ...

then a crab came out and painfully pinched my ear!

P.&B. Louw

Writing: In pairs try to write your own poem about the sea.
