A Mystical Marine Siren


A totally free form poem from the thoughts of a Mermaid. There are lots of songs and poems about these sea creatures and this is mine.

Martin Carthy wrote a song about a mermaid but that will be one of many, but I chosen this haunting "Song of Sirens"


Never Chase A Mermaid

If You Don鈥檛 Know How To Swim


Her Hair Is Gold

Her Smile Beguiles

Her Skin So Smooth

Her Tail Greensilver


She Is A Siren

Queen of Deep Water

Beneath The Waves

In Coral Caves

You May Find Her

She May Find You


She Will Bewitch

Her Perfect Smile

She Will Take your Heart

You Are Beguiled

Her Beauty Unfading

This Ocean Queen




Never Chase A Mermaid

If You Don鈥檛 Know How To Swim
