This pen-and-ink half-page illustration is outlined with a thin circular border, centered on the page above the poem’s text. The image is in a circular medallion shape, with a black background and white lines. The circle encloses a design of a baby and a fish, underwater. On the left of the image, the naked winged baby blows bubbles upward towards the fish. On the right, the fish swims upward, against a shell background. Several more bubbles surround the inner design.

Around the earth is spread the sea,
Full of wonders for you and me;
Across the waves the tall ships go,
But they know not the treasures that hide below.
