The Siren

The Siren

A Poem by S. Waldo

Cascading down the ivory back
Deep golden waves blanketed her body.

Her slim figure curved towards the sea
Vanishing away to cerulean scales of sapphires.

Eyes, like the ocean, from raging to peaceful
Looked out over the crests at the awaiting ships.

She is seductive as a temptress, quiet as a guppy
Calm like the reflecting pools, and angrier than the riptides.

A voice of musical melodies lured all creatures
To the watery sacrifices to those of Poseidon.

Her form may change from fins to feet
Striding along the sand, looking for fresh meat.

The siren would wait, patient with lust
Her lover coming closer, with every waking hour.

She sings her song of love, of passion
Yet hidden behind are natures of lustful attraction.

Sailors take heed, she is undeniably irresistible
Further and further in they are drawn

To their midnight murky graves
By the sorceress within those magnificent waves.
