Mermaid’s Song by Lillian Darnell

July 17 2019:

Mermaid’s Song

Mermaids swim the water
like a dolphin.
Mermaids sing as 
sweet as a pineapple.

Mermaids travel like whales
to explore magical lands
of unknown kingdoms.

Mermaids swim in the sky’s ocean
dancing in the sunlight.
Mermaids flick their tails
leaving water droplets
high in the sky.

Mermaids whisper
my name into the shell
as I listen to the waves of
mermaids talking.

Unicorn Magic

Unicorns dance like clouds
Leaving little rainbows everywhere.
Unicorns prance happily
as a wave of rainbows everywhere.

Unicorns chase their tails like
dogs shedding pretty
sunsets everywhere.

Unicorns watch over us
Like guardian angels.
The unicorn flies into my dream
As I sleep.
