Sea Poems Main Poetry Index

Far from our shores where the seagulls cry

As they circle around in the stormy sky,

     A mermaid sleeps in her briny bed,

     Golden curls crowning her little head.

 

She dreams of a world where dolphins play

And of golden sands and waves in the bay.

     With a flip of her tail-fin she’ll quickly dart

     And her lovely blue eyes will capture your heart.

 

She tickles the crabs, she teases the fishes

And turns coral shells into such pretty dishes.

     This is her world with her father and mother,

     With other sea children and sister and brother.

 

Sleep on little mermaid and dream of your pleasures

In your lovely sea palace surrounded by treasures.

     Tomorrow will bring yet another bright day -

     One full of laughter in your sea world of play.
