Ariel’s Song
by Dawn Pisturino
[author’s site]

Ariel sings a lusty song

Of ships upon the sea,

And ere the night is very long,

Her spell is cast on me.

She spins a web of intrigue,

She tells a tale of woe;

And when the sun is waxing big,

I do not want to go, —

No, I do not want to go.

But she folds her wings together

And whispers my release;

For her stories last forever

And her songs will never cease.

Then, she rises from the window,

Winging high into the light,

And I’m left alone in shadow

As she disappears from sight.
