Runner-up for grades 3/4 – Jasmine Cooper’s poem “Wetlands (Land of Wet)”

Wetland

by Jasmine Cooper

of Taroona Primary School

Filamentous algae on saltmarsh

The land of wet
I call it,
I hear
the beasties in the
wet
boggy
mud.
The soil
slowly
melts into
my toes
the cold,
wet
water is creeping
into my body
while the
insects
thrive
on the
moisture
in the
air.
On
the
misty mornings
the damp
mist lures the
frogs
into the water,
the wildlife and
the plants
are
flourishing,
the environment supports all the life in the wetlands
this is the wetland environment
