The Mermaid

“Jump in

and swim.

The water is cold

but the bold

will find gold

in the dank cave

which the brave


may explore”.

Mermen adore

the rocky sea floor

and will implore

you to play

as the day


The wise mermaid harkens

to the gull

who cries above,

“it is not love.

‘Tis better to stay on the sand warm

than have your heart torn


by mermen who plunder”.

The waves thunder

And the mermaid does wonder

About gold dust


And sin.
