Excerpt From a Lullaby of Sirens

Did she wish to be a mermaid
And dance beneath the sea?
For she laid down in the ocean
And did not come back to me.
Did she say where she was headed
When she said good-bye to you?
Did she get where she was going
When she sank into the blue?
She lived in castles made of sand
But knew they would not stay
So she lent her ear to sirens
Who gave her oceans
For her grave.
