Crucify the Siren

Crucify the Siren

A Poem by dan nacario

Mar the silence of gilded wave.
Rotten tombstone of galleons' grave.
Strike the angels golden lyre,
Veil the voice of beauty so dire.

Sleep, sleep by the moon so silent,
Pillowed by the acrid current.
Listen? Shall I listen once more?
If thou sing the song I adore.

Oh! Seraphs' council let this be,
Such love live in the heart of thee.
Would you crucify the siren?
If moonlight ignores to listen?

Beautiful wording! Short but sweet, and the last to lines have a resonating effect. Almost a dare to the reader.
Nicely writ.

This is very nice, I like the fitting title to the poem, as well as the last three lines, and this part here:
"Listen? Shall I listen once more?
If thou sing the song I adore."

Strong words you got there :). Interesting topic also. It's not everyday someone writes about a Greek Siren. You described just how alluring and intriguing they were bringing out the fact that no man can resist them. I'm guessing they want to kill the siren because she has done enough, but nonetheless, many men still yearn to listen. Overall nice write.
