Poetry: “Deserts” by Thea Tse

deserts - green plants on dry sand under blue sky


by Thea Tse

Some deserts are hot and sandy;

But others are very chilly.

Some dwelling animals are reptiles,

The creatures travel for miles and miles.

Desert wind piles up dunes of sand.

This treasured site has precious land.
