Mermaid Dreams

 I am a shining mermaid

with a home beneath the sea

dancing among the fishes

it feels my heart with glee

Twirling, spinning, swimming

in the ocean all day long

I burst through the water’s surface

to sing my siren song

and  all the sailors on their journey

seeking riches from the sea

come to hear my mermaid tune

and try to capture me

I laugh of course, because they can’t

I’m willful, wild, and free

So away I escape and once again

I’m home beneath the sea

Then I hear a tiny sound

a gurgle, gasp, and glub

And I realize tis all a dream

I’m just sleeping in my tub
