how magical the diamond coloured water is
In the words of his mum, William Reavill is ‘an amazing, imaginative young man who sees the world in a wonderful way’. We are sure you will agree when you read ‘Deep Dreams’ – and we are very proud indeed to include such a magnificent poem in the blog and competition. William loves skimming stones and enjoys watching ‘The 1900 Island’ on BBC 1 I-player. Thank you William for such a fantastic contribution and keep creating magical poetry!
in blue-sapphire waters
a fish lay sleeping underneath the waves,
while people up top went skimming for days.
On the other side of the water
no one knows what lies.
Just the fish that sits and waits for a surprise.
Some people go fishing just to test which fish is the best.
But some are glorious in their quest,
and come home triumphant with fish for every mouth.
But still do not know how magical the diamond coloured water is with its magnificent waves.
The brave silver fish,
that still sleep
and keep their secret
William Reavill, 9
