She is a mermaid, king of Poseidons treasure sans end
& Daughter of Oceanus lord of the seas.
Her voice is as gentle as the bays breeze.
I saw her ride a chariot of corals,
Yoked by four dolphins of rosé. Laurels
Neckleces they wore, fourteen precious gems
As beads entwined. Upon the river Thames
Her chariot she disposed. There on land
The very earth kissed her feet & her hand
Was caressed by the forests wind. Cool rain
Droplets gently uncurl her hair in vain
Before they wet it. The sun of summer,
Its orb lingers much longer 
To marvel its beauty. until the moon
Envious of her counterpart, forces old Helios of june
To complete its course. She is fairer than the word itself.
I swear love would be enamoured of her in self
Doubt & Aphrodites jealous rage would be appeased 
& content to ponder upon her image, How pleased
Is she to reflect her picture & visage
To lay eyes on my true loves youthful image.
Her skin is whiter than the seafoam
Which bore the birth of  loves home.
