Siren's Song

I sit among my rocks, waiting for the men to pass by.

The large rock by the door is scarred with my

marks, a record of those I watched die

While my song rose to fill the sky.

 

I pass by that rock every day, and I see

Only how many more marks there must be

Before my time is done, and I may leave

This rocky tower for the blue blue sea

 

I often wonder if these men ever, ever know

As their ship is dashed on the rocks below

That I do not hate them. Nay, I love them so . . .

These men who come, and yet too quickly go.

 

For it is lonely here day after passing day

Watching my only joy slip away

Beneath the waves as I turn to lay

My hand upon that rock so I do not sway

 

And turn to save the drowning men that I-

With my beauty which so pleased their eye

And the voice that lured them to my side-

Have broken and condemned to die.
