The Mermaids Tale a poem by RestLeSsD

This story’s told from days long gone.
Of the beautiful mermaids and their song
Unlike the tales of vivid dreams
And treacherous luring with wicked schemes.

The lovely girls had to find a way
To trick the boys so they’d stay away.
For they came here with one true intent
To steal their hearts without their consent.

This may sound like loves one true goal
In reality future hopes is what they stole.
The falsehood offered up love and a happy life
This was only a silkscreen to the future strife.

They only knew this from one who had escaped
She was able to return, the truth undraped.
Her story told for them all to know
No other maiden would err and go.

From that time then to this day now
When the boys sailed by the maids avow
To fool the boys so they would stay away,
So the maidens would not dare to stray.

They would sing their songs in lovely voice
The sailors slept, they had no choice.
The ship sailed on, the boys did snore.
They passed on by never seeing the shore.

There is a lesson here somewhere
You can figure it out if you really care.
Or perhaps this is just an old folktale
You decide, truth will always prevail. . .

Song to the Siren – This Mortal Coil

A story I created reversing the legends of the sirens luring men from their ships. Could this also have other meanings? Open to your own interpretation. . . hope you enjoy this. . . :o)

Original shot with a Nikon CP8400 at in Northern California – Morrow Bay, CA, USA. The jetty created a wonderful sun strike on the watery sand. I loved seagulls in silouhette. . .
