The Mermaid’s Song
“Teach me to hear mermaids singing”
Faintly sounds the Siren’s song
Heard by one, then is gone
Mermaid returns through frozen sea
To liquid vortex to be free.
Do you know and shall we go
To fluid vortex of the soul?
Perhaps we shall, perhaps we’ll wait
Perhaps we’ll share a different fate.
Where is here and here is gone
Up no matter, down beyond
Voices heard but seldom found
Teach me to hear the mermaid’s song.
