‘Under the Stars’ by Grace Harrison, Age 8 Years

Under the Stars The wind bellows within the sails, Along with the chorus of the whales , The white horses gallop and neigh, These are the words that the white ones say, “Swim, oh fish, the Fishermen come, You may be caught and dried under the sun,” Seagulls soar across the sky, They think how… Read more »

Everyone cheers as the tall ships sail into sight; Busy sailors waving happily from the sails. The sparkles and fizzes fill the air, The fireworks painting the midnight blue sky by… Read more »
