I was walking by the seaside
in the moonlight so entrancing.
Upon the sparkling water
I saw the mermaids dancing.
They bid me frolic with them
as they danced upon the ocean.
Their bodies swayed seductively
in undulating motion.
Their song was so enchanting
syncopated with their laughter.
I wanted to dance with them
for now and ever after.
To leave my cares behind me
in search of Neptune’s daughter —
for with her I’d find freedom
in the seaweeds ‘neath the water.
Sample my books for free — proceeds feed the homeless:
