I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Mermaid
Mermaid

There was a little girl who had long beautiful hair

She loved to go by the river with her dad who was so dear

She liked to look at the fishes and splash in the stream

To be like a mermaid was her greatest dream

She would spend hours in the water flapping around

And only came out when it was time to eat lunch


One day as she and her father were having a good time swimming around

They saw what looked like a beautiful mermaid making a sweet sound

They stopped and looked at the mermaid who waved at them

They waved back and called her and so they became friends

It was a great day at the river as the mermaid had come around

She and Ash became good friends and gave her a gift which was a comb


Whenever she used it in her hair, she would become a mermaid

Ash combed her hair near the river every day and on the banks she laid

Then the magic happened and she was transformed into a beautiful mermaid and they would swim together

Off they went, enjoying themselves and talking to all the sea creatures


The ocean was beautiful with all the wonderful things

Ash was now a mermaid and she met sea queens and kings

Ash enjoyed being a mermaid anytime she wished

Her best friend, her best pal, the little mermaid.

      I’m trying to think about the pros and cons of mermaid-hood. Maybe I want a comb but then there are also sharks and pirates and ocean trash to be afraid of. I’m kinda undecided. But I did like your poem, Clive.
