The Mermaid

The Mermaid

The sky was all pink
At the end of the day
The big yellow sun
Was slipping away;
Out there on the water,
The flick of a tail;
A trick of the light -
Or maybe a whale?

She rose from the water
With arms open wide
As if she would gather
The whole world inside;
A beautiful mermaid
With hair like a veil,
And then she was gone
With the flick of a tail.
