The Poetry of Brian Langley


Fish Tales - Some more Nautical Nonsense


The fishes up at Coral Bay
Go off to school each other day.
But in between
They can be seen
Showing people how they play.


They swim in circles, round and round
And pick up things from off the ground
And every one
Has lots of fun
Doing things that make a sound


Like crunching coral in their jaws
And doing other fishy chores.
Make bubbles and
Get rid of sand
From outside of their front doors.


When tomorrow comes to Coral Bay
The fish that people saw today
Will go to school
That is the rule.
And those from there will come to play
