This is “The Mermaid,” written by me on December 18, 2016. The gorgeous painting is the work of Russian artist Victor Nizovtsev. ♡
Magical, mystical mermaid girl
Tell us of your ocean world
What treasures do you keep below
Deeper than man would dare to go?
Do you dream of human life
While bathed in stars on moonlit nights
Wishing you had legs to roam
To lead you from your liquid home?
What stories have you from the deep
Where dolphins dwell and fishes sleep
Are you a princess in your world
Oh fair and lovely mermaid girl?
I wish that I could hear you sing
I’m told it’s such a wondrous thing
For now the best that I can do
Is go to sleep and dream of you…
