To Leave Melancholy Waters Behind

To Leave Melancholy Waters Behind Resolutely her heart pounded its glee she a mere mermaid of romantic seas in heart of hearts mortal wanting to be upon solid ground from waters thus free A princess and to earthen realm thus wed with that precious dream always in her head. To leave melancholy waters behind stroll into humanity, true love find walking new steps and feel sun's waking glows feel the beach sands between her newfound toes. Touch pendulous branches of willow trees rise to wander the new world as she please. Admiring land's beauty, Nature's soft views watch as sun colored skies bluest hues dance as life and loving were both there found live as dream by *Prometheus unbound Wear the flowers of Spring's fragrant romance searching for her prince not waiting for chance! Under night skies, slow wafting tidal waves praying mercy's breath that lonely heart saves she reaching up to touch that dream aloft to receive gift of kisses warn and soft *Poseidon her sincerest prayers had heard changing her to mortal with single word! Resolutely her heart pounded its glee she a mere mermaid of romantic seas in heart of hearts mortal wanting to be upon solid ground from waters thus free A princess and to earthen realm thus wed with that precious dream always in her head. Robert J. Lindley, 6-09-2019 Rhyme, ( In The Realm That Allows Dreams To Come True ) ( Born From Greek Mythology Influence And An Old Poet's Delight )

Aside from your familiar mastery of myth and its expression, this poem also has a dynamic movement. Each stanza progresses at pace and keeps the reader locked in. Very involving poetry.
