If I were a Mermaid

If I were a Mermaid If I were a Mermaid my name would be Margo and I’d live in the deepest blue sea I’d swim with the dolphins, make friends with the sharks and hope that they wouldn’t eat me If I were a Mermaid my tail would be gold and my hair would be crimson red I’d hold it in place with fishbones I found buried deep in the seabed If I were a Mermaid I’d go to school in a cavern by the bay My classmates would be clownfish and squid The teacher a grumpy stingray If I were a Mermaid I’d frolic and play with the creatures of the sea The lobsters and shrimp the whales and the crabs the eels and shy manatees If I were a Mermaid I’d spend my days watching ships as they travel afar I’d spend my nights on warm sandy beaches Making wishes upon shooting stars If I were a Mermaid I’d dream of pirates and the treasures that they sought I’d dream of their ships with their tattered white sails and the battles that they fought If I were a mermaid I would do all these things in my Home beneath the sea But I’m not really a mermaid so I’ll just be content To be the one and only ME

Thank you! I have 4 great grandchildren 3 boys and a girl. Of course her name is Margo and she is the inspiration for the poem. I also have a short story, Margo gets a Mom, and that is based on Margo and her brother. My granddaughter adopted them last year. Thanks again!!

Cathy, I think you made the mermaids within us all blush. That's right....guys can have inner mermaids too.....Well done.

Love this. Wonderful imagination. Very humourous to hope that sharks wouldn't eat you :-D and a grumpy stingray for a teacher. Lovely personification of friendship with the sea life. Very fun. Adding to faves :-D
