Siren


Her eyes, two pools of clearest water,

Mirroring that world within;

Reflecting summers warmth with grace,

If eyes could talk her eyes would sing.


 

The ballad might tell of hidden dangers,

Troubled waters unperceived,

Exotic threats beneath the surface,

Sharp stones and entangling weeds.


 

And yet


 

Should every danger be contrived

To lurk down there amongst the Deeps

Still would I gaze into her haunting eyes,

Where Medusa’s spirit never sleeps.

Hey this is good. Very nice imagery. Are you referring to the Deeps as the underworld? Just curious.
