A BEMUDA BEAUTY MYSTERY - I
Beauty of Helen launched a thousand ships to war!
After 10 years of war and 10 years of sea ordeal
Returned home the first blood soldier to settle in life!
Haunted by the beauty and love many died on the way;
After many a birth as soldier, hunter he was born again
As a sea faring ship captain going round the world!
He happened to see pirates of Arabian Sea, Caribbean Sea;
Learnt he many strangeness of different places of the world;
Being a deep sea diver he was exploring beautiful secrets!
Devil Caves under the Pacific Ocean had gulped many ships!
On a diving expedition many said about the past incidences;
Yet Captain dived in the ocean to explore rare pearl oysters!
Exploring many beautiful creatures at a distance he saw
Something rare and incredible species as it looked to be
A wonderful merman being chased by a shark of huge kind!
He shot a harpoon to bring an end to the chase killing the shark;
Astonished about the accuracy the majestic merman turned
And was fascinated by the handsome captain swimming to him!
“I am the King of Merworld! Thanks and welcome to my world!
You have saved my life and so, what is mine is yours, my friend! ”
“No, I have just done my duty, King! ” Captain said in his way.
Much pleased King led the captain to unfathomable caves of ice,
Where mermaids with beautiful dance and songs welcomed them
To please the guest of honour specially escorted by their king!
