LADY OF THE SEA By Warren Brown
Upturned brows and eyes deep green
Partly adorned by shiny scales,
A lady who is often seen
By any man who ocean sails.
He saw her perched amid the rocks
But, when he did silently creep,
He caught a glimpse of golden locks
As she dived smoothly into the deep.
Mermaids are part of fantasy
Later found to be only seals,
Yet, the legend lives out at sea
About mysterious damsels.
(My first poem written when I was 18 years old and Published by the National Library of Poetry in their Anthology of Poems, Published by Watermark Press, USA)
