A Man Young And Old: Iii. The Mermaid

Rating: 3.3

A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.

Another terrific expression of the same callous indifference to the welfare of others.
