Mermaid sits alone in the seashell castle
Her green tail shines like a jade tapestry
The glittering surface of the sea ripples as a ship floats
She swims up to the pearl strewn portal
And sings to enchant the oblivious sailor
Heartbroken she weeps a trail of gems
Her crystal tears tumble to the beach.

Oooh. Great poem. Five stars. You're a fan of Hans Christian Anderson too?! The Little Mermaid is so sad compared to the movie!
