Poseidon's Promise

Recommended Posts

This was inspired by Psimon's "Temptress"

 

 

Poseidon's Promise

------------

 

The Sirens sit and sing

The perfect silhouette men see

Sweet voices to lure them in

 

 

He hears it float across the rocks

His fate lies in his strength

The pull to follow, great

 

 

Sad songs for sad ladies

Promised beauty, light and love

Poseidon had a purpose

 

 

Lure the wandering sailor

Bring him to the murky depths

Revenge against the race of man

 

On the rock the sirens sing

The promise still not kept.

Two of three they have

 

Beauty of face and form for sure

A voice for songs so lovely

But love. will never be

 

For those who follow. die

The Siren's song the last they hear

And those who resist, move on

Ah, mythology! Gotta love it! Seriously, I loved this Wren. I enjoyed the imagery, and now have the urge to go read some Greek mythology. :)
