The Colorful Mermaid - Kids Poem

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

Little Mermaid

Little Mermaid

She splashes and dashes

Making waves in the sea

A beautiful little mermaid Ashonte


Her tail is colorful and sparkling

And in this great sea, her father is a king

She swims with the fishes and creatures of the deep

A colorful little mermaid, skipping the ocean's floor like a kid on the street


But how did she get such a rainbow looking tail?

Fascinating to look at, such beauty to prevail

Blue, Yellow, Purple, Red, pink and Green

Dazzle before my eyes, never before such beauty has been seen


There she goes again, swimming with the dolphins

Laughing and waving, as though she wants me to join in

She swims close to the shore and gives me a huge smile

A beautiful little mermaid, your charm cannot hide.

Charming, and so adorable! I love rainbows :-) My favorite are the rainbow horses that have manes and tails that can be combed and braided. This is such a refreshing, and happy poem.

Thank you for sharing ~

Cute. I hope you are able to share this with some kids who might enjoy it. I can even see it in a coloring book.

A perfect fun read for kids. But I'm still left wondering, "how DID she gets such a rainbow tail....."
