Once upon a time there was a Siren fair
She had sorrowful eyes and dried seaweed hair
She loved to bask on the shore and explore the depths
Not once did it occur to her to beware of nets
One auspicious night under the bright, full moon
A lone fisherman waded out into the blue
His eyes beheld silver: an unearthly glow
What lay beneath? He needed to know.
He cast his net far, and let it fall deep
It found its purchase in melancholy sleep.
The Siren awoke in an alien world
Gasping and frightened, she cried drops of pearls
The fisherman was transfixed, and his desire consumed
Naive though he was, he had sentenced her doom.
For no aid from our world can a Mermaid derive,
And once she has come here; she cannot survive.
