Water Nymph (Fantasy Poem)

Water Nymph come swim with me,
in the deepest valleys of the sea.
Swim through the eddies,
flirt with the sea ladies.
Many treasures here for you and me.
sirens of the sea waving happily.
Water nymph, water nymph,
did you see, they waved at me.
Come water nymph come swim with me.
Enjoy the vastness of the deep blue sea.
There are sea monkeys, sirens, mermaids and more.
Maybe we can take some treasures back to shore.
Oh cmon water nymph, don’t be shy.
Come swim with me, watch the boats sail by.

    This work is well crafted, and the imagery is just right. I imagine the treasures that would be taking back to shore, water babies? LOL

    Nice one!

    Well you know you had me with this one....The sea is my calm from the storms, my peace and at times my dearest love [after the grandbabies that is] it is my refuge, my joy and is responsible for thousands of sky miles from the going to and coming back, the island seas so far away from me....What a beautiful write on this sunny, cool Sunday....abit too cool for me to venture to Quonie house....
