The Mermaid
  JERRY BROWNING  

 ..FOLLOWING SEAS   

 

The Mermaid
 

she glides to me
breeze tossing
her golden hair
waving
like old glory
thru the smoke

her smile spreads
like a rainbow
she calls my name
with a musical accent
foreign yet familiar

as we meet
and embrace…
electricity
sweeps our souls
our lips touch
trembling

thru St. Elmo’s fire
she leads my emotions
to the edge
of the seventh sea
but a hideous voice
pierces the balloon

zz reveille, reveille
all hands heave out
and trice up… zz

with sad eyes
and a single tear
she fades
into the tide
beyond my maddest grip
sealed over
in a blue-gray tomb

Toulon, France ‘88
