Tail of the Sea: Prologue

Tail of the Sea: Prologue

A Poem by Diana

My retelling of "The Little Mermaid."


Once about a time, she began

There was a kingdom no one knew

It resides underneath the waves

Entered and seen by few

In the sea, these creatures swam

With not two legs, but a tail

They had shining sparkles and flares of light

At the teardrop of each scale

They were different, these creatures were

Not many know the truth

They had beauteous faces, and shining skin

And forever remained in their youth

Some say they have magic, simple spells

But wicked sorcery is what’s said by the rest

Spells and power that rattle the stars

It is said it’s what they do best 

Some men say that they’ve spotted them on

The journeys upon which they embark

But these men think foolish fantasies

And are complacent in the dark

For these creatures are never seen

Forbidden to lay eyes on the lands

They stick to their homes beneath the waves

Away from the human sands

So some say they’re only a myth

But they’re just not there to dwell

So listen closely, listen here

For I have a tale to tell
