I've been collecting Whimsy's Secrets (Mermaid's Tears) for years...these are some of my creations...now I can share her secrets with everyone.....


 

Whimsy combed the beach each day
Searching for a friend…
A pal to share her secrets with  
On whom she could depend!
 
Things she shouldn’t tell a soul
Secrets she should keep!
For only mermaids know the truth
Of Neptune’s treasures deep!
 
One afternoon she found me there
Combing the beach alone…
Searching the sand for mermaid’s tears
Treasures to call my own!
 
She played upon the waves awhile
Dashing here and there…
Bright emerald eyes watching me
Wondering if she’d dare!
 
She finally got the courage
And swam right up to me…
And from that moment my best friend
Was a creature from the sea!
 
The little girl and the mermaid
That no one else could see,
Kindred souls that shared one heart
And that heart belonged to me!
 
Life goes on as seasons change
And the child grew up one day.
But even now, when she’s by the sea
Whimsy comes to play!

A truly beautiful poem, and its tone and content remind me of a childhood favorite by Peter, Paul and Mary... you know, the one about the dragon named Puff!!

Thanks so much for re-igniting my childhood imagination... peace to you.

The beach and the shores of Atlantic Canada do tend to lead us into a magic that is hard to explain to those who do not love the sea as we do...

Beaconing's great, unless, of course, you step on a rusty can or nail.
Loved this one.

You never outgrow certain whimsy's, Anna, as you well know. I think it is a wonderful thing that you scan the beach every so often for mermaid tears. The next time I am at the beach I, too, will look for mermaid tears in tribute to you.
