Poem I wrote in 2003. The mermaid swims around Completely wild, completely free Blissfully happy and proud For her talents reach beyond all measure. She spends her days chattering with the seagulls SInging with the whales And frolicking amongst her friends beneath the waves For there is no end to her enchantments. King Tritan And Queen Aphrodite Watch over her For there are no limits to her beauty. From above the waves The pale moon and the brilliant sun Shed light on her home For she has the whole world to occupy her. She will never grow old And no matter her age in years She will never die For she is the spirit of the sea.
