Sights and Sounds of the Sea

STUDENT 23
Where’d they take you this time? 

PLYMOUTH ROCK
They brought me to Pilgrim Hall,
but not before I had another accident.
Can you believe I rolled off the cart
they loaded me on and fell into the street? 

TEACHER
If you look closely, you can still
see the crack across the rock’s face.
 
STUDENT 24
Oh wow, I see it! I can see it! 

ABBY
How’d they protect you in front of Pilgrim Hall? 

PLYMOUTH ROCK
The people of Plymouth
made me a small fence enclosure,
and although it kept me safe
from the chiseling souvenir-hunters,
it also kept the visitors from getting close to me.
I wasn’t happy in this new spot.
I still enjoyed seeing people everyday
but I thought about my original home on the beach.
I thought about Mr. Seagull and Madame Crab.
Oh, how I missed the sights and sounds of the sea!
