Coral Story

Inspiration for the name of the UWF College of Education and Professional Studies CORAL Center is exemplified in the following description of coral.

Coral Tree for poem


Branched like a tree
Fanning the sea
Colorful formation
Limestone knee

Cradle for marine life
Water's buoyant sway
Rainbow of color
Beneath the ocean spray

Sea animal skeleton
Polyps growing in time
Warm shallow waters
Forming reefs by design

Myriads of species
Communities of the sea
United in formation
Revealing ocean's mysteries
