Midsummer Night’s Dream, Part 2

Cairn, Ocean, Beach

Once I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid on a dolphin’s back
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath
That the rude sea grew civil at her song
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,
To hear the sea-maid’s music.

  1. So lovely, Brenda. Stars reacting to the mermaids song sounds almost like the Sirens effect upon ships passing them. Strange magic and I will always be entranced by the night’s sky with its diamonds. 🙂
