A Mermaid's Tale.

Would you care to run away?
I know a place of magic things,
Where sea-fern forests gently sway
And sunlight glints from silver fins.

Together we'll leave quietly,
Though waves above may quake and surge,
I'll show you where the turtles sleep
And sand rests peaceful, undisturbed.

Join me in the quiet depths-
Ever silent, never tamed,
Where secrets of the tides are kept
And days no longer bear a name.

And when above we're finally missed
Their short-lived search will be in vain,
For earthly things must fade to dust
But we beneath the waves remain.
