Writing to The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Arthur was playing with his kite in the lovely countryside park,

When all of a sudden he lets go and it goes flying like a dart.

He was sad he was lonely now that his favourite toy had disappeared,

His parents tried to comfort him but he just found it weird.

Then Arthur saw it coming back! Maybe this story isn’t so dark,

He thought he could catch it so he went running out the park!

His parents screamed for him, ‘Arthur, back!’ was their demand,

But it was too late as he was halfway across the woodland.

First when the music is calm, it's just a scene with a ship in the ocean (in the night), as the music gradually speeds up and tenses (I think) lots of ripples appear in the water. When it becomes more bouncy and lively, a kraken appears out of the water, lifting the ship into the air with its tentacles. It shakes the ship around then goes back in the water. Later, there is a storm and the ship starts sinking. The kraken comes to rescue the ship and puts it on an island.
