By J Ann Crowder

Enchantments of a mystic deep
Fabled creature of sea
A veritable truth she keeps
’Tis a voice of larks’ glee
 
In rippling shoals of wavy blue
Green tailed, singing bird
Arose with a magic tear’s brew
Aquamarine gleams spurred
 
On dorsal fins—carved beauty fair
As shallows, restless, bend
Drifting boats seek her nature’s           prayer
Hushed beyond azure scend
 
Intruding charms set eyes on stars
A golden tailed fluke
Young, clear cheeked—alluring             bazaar
Sings a doves tender flock
 
Awestruck in everlasting dreams
Enfolding melody
A golden harp’s splendor thus seen
Bossoms burn revery
 
An enchanting muse thus ensnares
A sailor now bewitched
A note’s bellows softly declare
He besotted—eclipsed

My first little ballad. Another whimsical poem. My daughter wanted me to write a poem about a mermaid. Written July 27th, 2016.

I thought that was about a mermaid, before you wrote the caption at the bottom. It is a very romantic one and I loved your passion and choice of words.

Poor sailor or should I say lucky chap. The last stanza could easily be me, hypnotized, lulled. She after all is the Lady of the Sea!
Loved it. Thanks for a delightful morning I had reading this.
Aside: HCA's Emperor's New Clothes is very fitting, pun intended, in the current politics.

"Teenagers...dey tink dey know everything. You give dem an inch, dey swim all over you". -Sebastian
from "The Little Mermaid"

Your poem reminded me of Sebastian. I used him to "terrify" my two girls when they were little. Hahaha.

Nice entertaining poem!
