children

It was long ago when I was a kid,
I used to think such silly things,
This time I'll tell you about the sea,
And all the ways teh water sings.
I remember my uncle warning me of coral,
'It's daft,' he said, 'It'll cut you blind,
Divers had to be very careful, 
And wary of the creatures they'd find.
If the coral cut you throughly deep,
My uncle told me there's a price to pay,
I believe him for the longest time,
That new coral would grow from the wound one day.
