Through the journey, life arrives Underwater – start their lives Stable neither hot nor cold Soft tiny eggs there to behold

Of such a time, lay vulnerable For many eggs is tactical Protection of the animal Camouflaged with gravel

Frogs and toad, amphibian class Eggs that float in jelly mass From tadpole to a metamorph The stages of which to transform

The brooding pouch of the seahorse Protection from an outside force Hatch of species, tiny fry Plankton their to multiply

Yolk sac feed, young fish growing Strengthened muscles for swimming Insect eggs and prawn relish Hunting groups for bigger fish

Gliding through in forward motion Darker depths of the ocean Water wonders plentiful Such vertebrates are wonderful
