Selkie Boy - Poem by John Bowyer

The Selkie sung in the morning light
Drifting melodies and pleasing sight
Starstruck found the fishermans wife
Wearied by her lonely life

Selkie boy innocent and pure
Had just one day for his allure
His forbidden unattainable pelt
Left their hearts to meld and melt

Returning to her husband forever changed
She proceeds to have life rearranged
From this discussion passion erupts
With far more joy than fisticuffs

To this home Selkie boy did bring
instructions on how hearts can sing
