The Water Nymph ~ by Autumn


She lives in a magic cove

she knows, and she shows

that the wonders of the sea

will always be

a mystery to the human eyes

what a surprise

they seldom see

that magic that can be

seen in the water and waves

only the few and the brave

will be open to change

and be glad to rearrange

what they thought was just chance

and actually see a water  nymph dance

she sings

she brings

joy and hope and light

so bright

beams of sun

it’s all just begun

So open your eyes and see

and the magic that can be

by the land or the sea

whispers on a wing and a prayer …
