Ariel's Song

Ariel's Song


 Dawn Pisturino

Ariel sings a lusty song
Of ships upon the sea,
And ere the night is very long,
Her spell is cast on me.

She spins a web of intrigue,
She tells a tale of woe;
And when the sun is waxing big,
I do not want to go, --
       No, I do not want to go.

But she folds her wings together
And whispers my release;
For her stories last forever
And her songs will never cease.

Then, she rises from the window,
Winging high into the light,
And I'm left alone in shadow
As she disappears from sight.

March 12, 1986
For My Daughter, Ariel
