The Sea

If the sea could hear What would it hear Would it hear young children crying in fear Or would it hear the songs Of migrating whales year after year What would the sea hear If the sea could smell What would it smell Would it smell oil not cleaned up well Or would it smell the faint scent Of a sea slug's jell What would the sea smell If the sea could see What would it see Would it see trapped sea turtles calling "help me" Or would it see dolphins Swimming wild and free What would the sea see If the sea could speak What would it say Would it say please don't treat me that way Or would it say Look at the seals as they swim and they play We all know what the sea would say
