Somebody wanted a poem about a siren and this was my submission. They didn't really like mine not seeing a siren as a thing that would draw a man to his death. But I liked it so I decided to add it here.

My siren song calls to him from afar and he ignores the arms of his lover and heeds not the warnings of his friends.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he looks to the sea with a stout heart and high hopes he set sail.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he sails through the brightest days and the darkest nights never wavering in his resolve.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he braves murderous storms and the wrath of might sea monsters never losing faith he would reach me.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he refuses to see the fate of those who came before him, the fate that he is sure to share.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he denies the danger until his keel shatters and his hull cracks.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he slips below the waves into a watery embrace and finally gives up the song.

 

My siren song calls anew and if it calls for you than your fate is already sealed.
