A collection of my poems.

6. The Merepeople's Song

“I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each. 

I do not think that they will sing to me.” 
― T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock


-From my book: A Magical Year




"There once was a girl,

Who shone like a pearl,

Her hair like the sun, 

She was sweet and fun. 

And there was a boy, 

Staring at her with joy, 

That's an angel that I see, 

Said the boy with glee. 

Her eyes as blue as sea, 

They were all he could see. 

Her smile charmed any gent, 

Curved like a night's crescent.  

Her heart very kind, 

She had a witty mind, 

Her voice soft to hear, 

forces you to come near. 

So they talked and went out, 

And soon they had no doubt, 

They were in love, it was clear, 

And together they spent a year, 

But that was not enough, 

Parting them was really tough, 

But with the touch of her lips, 

The moon moved, caused an eclipse. 

From him to her, his magic switched, 

and turned her into a witch.

She never even needed that, 

She was already charming to look at. 

Her magic was enough to steal 

his heart. Their love was real, 

And our song is the proof, 

that this guy may be a goof, 

but he's a goof who's in love, 

that's a thing to be proud of. "
