Mermaid


I saw her just the other day
Swimming in a Western bay
I saw her face
I knew it was love.

Smiling mermaid of the Seven Seas
Yeah, she looked at me
I saw her face
I knew it was love.

And she called out my name
And I knew it would never be the same to me
In waves of smiling ecstasy
She's calling from an emerald sea
Mermaid, calling me.

The sunset came and full moon rose
A windy beach where no one goes
To water's edge, I came along.

And then a voice called out to me
As moonlight swept the boundless sea
So beautiful, her mermaid song.

And the wind, it did rise
As I looked into her turquoise eyes
And heard the roar
Of breakers on that ancient shore
So close to me forever more
Mermaid, calling me.

She will be there
When I want her
Swimming out, into the blue.

Like an angel
On a seashell
Ocean girl, I love you
And you know she'll always be
Shining mermaid of the sea.

And she called out my name
And I knew it would never be the same to me
In waves of smiling ecstasy
She's calling from an emerald sea
Mermaid, calling me.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is a song I originally wrote in 1994 but have made several revisions since then. It had been my dream to record it at a studio for a long time, and finally got it recorded some weeks ago with the help of an arranger. Am very pleased with the recording and am now in the process of trying to get it played on radio stations.

    Thanks Captain Cur! I appreciate it. I was going to list the link to hear the song, but it would violate the posting rules here. So if you want to hear it, maybe there is some way I can send it to you. (Report) Reply

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
