A mellifluous voice emerged from the haze

A beauteous siren caught his gaze

The melodious chant of the sirens voice

The sailor bore great rejoice

The seductress beyond the boundless reef

The limits caused him colossal grief 

Oblivious of the threat to his treasured vessel

The notion of desire he could not wrestle

Unlike Odysseus, did not desist

The siren’s song he could not resist
