Siren - Poem by Dejan Stojanovic

From the sea sings her seductive song;
Even Odysseus cannot escape it;

Even Odysseus falls into her net.
Every man wants to be enslaved
By a Siren and hear her song
At least once.

To be enslaved
By the magic sound of the sea,
And dream how to escape
And hit the ground again.

Man proves his courage on the open sea
Where only the sea measures the sky,
And the sky measures the sea,
When days are long and nights sing the siren's song

Of voyages and shores.
Every way hides the secret
Deciphered only from the long friendship with the sky.
Siren was born out of this love.

Every man needs his Siren
To check his courage and strength
When he hears her song
In his travels through the unknown.
