One thinks of Earth as soil and sand,
But most of it is not:
A lot more water than of land
Is what this planet’s got.
In fact, when seen from outer space
What isn’t sea is cloud;
It’s not too often you can trace
The land-shapes standing proud.
We see some sea from balcony;
Sea scenes from down the road;
When seeing sister, then we see,
Of sea, another load.
But there is something that we get
In even more supply –
Both over dry and over wet
There is a lot of sky!
