Dolphinian Mermaid in Halcyon Sea SOS Poem

MoonLight Mermaid

Today we have a mermaid poem by Denise Margaret Hargrave that combines idyllic scene-setting words with an environmental message .  The poem was recently published in A Mermaid’s Tale of Xanadon’t and Other Poems, which is the latest in Wendy Webb’s mermaid series, and features poems by Wendy Webb and guests.

Thanks to Denise for creating and sharing the poem, and Wendy and Anne Mullender for helping to make it available here.  Enjoy!  

SOS

From
the sea
she sprang like
a dolphin, and
hovered shimmering
turquoise in the ether,
an otherworldly being,
spectacularly beautiful,
waves of golden hair tumbling down
in halcyon light, hallowed
and haloed.  ‘Save our seas,’
she said.  ‘Save our seas.’
Then with a swish
of her tail
she was
gone.
