The Siren's Song

By: Adam M. Snow

 

Once upon a midnight wake,

A Siren sings, 'Sweet mercy sake'

Soothes the hearts O' gentle man,

In their yielding peaceful span.

Sirens cometh from the deep,

Cloaked in light the water sleep,

Claims the souls, lost to man,

Since the dawning life began.

Gathers victims from the shore,

Spoke the stories ancient lore,

Of beauty risen from the sea,

Captures souls without a plea.

Mesmerized them with her song,

And as the boat-head wound along,

Lighthouse glistens over tides,

Kiss her lips and she abides,

Kiss her twice, your souls no more,

And death awaits at your shore.

Awe you know your mythological creatures who prey on the lives of men for their voices trap them. Marvelous description and words in a mystical way. Sirens have been mentioned quite often whether people have noticed and yours was very creative as other have never probably thought of them and in described them with their feeling such a way. Well done and keep up the excellent poetry; hope to read more great writings.

Beautiful and haunting, just like its subject. Great job on rewriting the real myths associated with sirens into this well-metered, perfect-rhymed poem. I loved this.

O how i loved this, every line i quite well enjoyed, and your style of writing i love, as well as wonderful rhyming. I see some comments you have speaking bout Poe's "The Raven" it does seem to have a sense of it. But it's your own way of it. And it's great. :D I love these lines here:
"Gathers victims from the shore,
Spoke the stories ancient lore,
Of beauty risen from the sea,
Captures souls without a plea."

I love the style behind this..Raven like, but yet so different. It is grabbing and wonderfully set! Nicely penned, thanks for a mythological view..almost felt like I was strolling thru...

Very well done. Great rhyme and flow. Reminds me of Poe's "The Raven." Keep on penning.

"Kiss her lips and she abides,

In so few words. You can always create a strong and beautiful story. I like how you led the reader into the tale and left us with a very good ending. Thank you for a outstanding poem.
