Thank you for a wonderful internship!


Three short months ago,

At the end of May

I went to start my internship,

Down in Buzzard’s Bay

My first day at the NMLC,

Everyone was very kind

They trained me for this summer,

And they sharpened up my mind

Animal care was very exciting,

Helping out the turtles and seals

Cleaning, water quality, laundry,

And preparing all of their meals

I learned that grey seals are quite feisty,

And sea turtles take their time to eat

That you always need to be patient,

And be able to think on your feet

I taught children about marine life,

And read a book or two

I hope I put smiles on their faces,

And taught them something new

As the summer came to an end,

 I celebrated at the mermaid ball

I learned more working at the NMLC,

than I’ll ever learn in a college lecture hall

I want to thank all of the volunteers and staff,

It was a pleasure working with everyone

Thank you for making it so memorable,

But don’t worry, I’ll be back!

 My time with you has only just begun.
