Tail of the Sea: Chapter 1

Tail of the Sea: Chapter 1

A Poem by Diana

Here's chapter one of my "The Little Mermaid" retelling!


And now this story shall tell of two

Entirely different, through and through

One a maiden, who sails with the breeze

The other, prince of the untamed seas

And this is how the story starts

When from the land, the maiden departs

For she loved sailing the unknown realm

Gazing alone from behind the helm

She has beauty and kind words she may say

But lucks not on her side today

For the wind picks up, and the waves grow

Currents sweep faster, and howling winds blow

At the helm she searches frantically around

Looking for a place of safe ground

But everywhere there’s rage and there’s storms

And around the boat the ocean deforms

The boat rocks and turns and sways

Under a sky of blacks and grays

And suddenly she is thrown overboard

As the wind blowed and the rain poured

And on the side, watching with glee

Is the demon witch of the dark sea

She chuckles as she finishes her spell

And to the maiden she waves farewell
