Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Mermaid
 
Through opaque curtains of hazy mists
In twilight hours of purple sunset
Atop rocks jutting from ocean depths
Quietly sitting, a solitary silhouette

Azure blue waves caress her ocean throne
Moon beams dance upon her silken hair
Starlight sparkles deep within her eyes
Revealing all mysteries that are hidden there

From the inner depths of her enchanted soul
Flows yearn filled notes in melodious song
The measures are seasoned with bittersweet rhyme
As short notes are played out mournfully long

Calling upon mystical powers that be
Entreat her this rare whimsical glance
Into a fantasy, wonder filled world
Where all heavenly stars sparkle and dance

Beyond the realm of mere mortal men
Now beckoning magical silver silhouette
Around her neck ever gleaming so bright
A beguiling necklace, a sapphire amulet

In the wonders of the stillness of night
Golden full moon begins to descend
Another restless night of waking dreams
For now her visit must come to an end

Before the golden glow dawning of morning sun
She leaves the mossy perch of her throne upon high
Breaking through the oceanís bubbling surface
Within the withdrawing silvery tide

In bursting, dramatic, rapid, succession
She jumps in the air and then gracefully dives
Springing forth from the cold, clear blue waters
Reaching up to embrace the pink morning sky

As the sun begins to crest the horizon
And mystical bells begin ringing their chime
She gives her green tail a great surging thrust
And jumps into deep fathoms for the last time

Contentedly resigned to a life of solitude
Until mystical moon beckons to her once more
Mermaid enchantress swims spiraling downward
To Neptuneís mystical kingdom upon ocean floor
