Many animals swimming through the deep,

Awakening in the shallows,

Rays, whales, eels and sharks,

Intermingling with the lesser ones,

No humans in this underwater world,

Except for the occasional deep-sea diver.

Life in the ocean is busy, full of movement, Increasingly turbulent,

Full of mystery and drama,

Energetic and beautiful!

Who thought she had nothing to do.

Then she looked at her list,

In the valley he passed

All the people who gasped

At the beast that was uttering "moo"
