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.
Youth - Honorary Mention. It's amazing how if you've visited, camped, jogged, and evenutally walked a desert, you'll notice how much the landscape can be so alive.
