What The Mermaid Told Me

The raindrops glowed still brighter

From the shadow of the moon

The tulips twinkled with laughter

For dawn was to come soon


Farther north there was a rock

Beside a lonely sea

And as I thought to stand and walk

The mermaid smiled at me


Her bright eyes shone with mystery

Thus sadly she said

All you see, what you believe

The world surely is instead


You see that bright star in the sky?

It watched over you today

But as it saw your guilt and lies

It quickly turned away
