The Selkie

 A moonlit night by the sea;

              a bereft lover weeps for thee.
Grieving the loss of Selkie’s embrace;
 tears of sorrow dampen her face.

                                                                                  Unfettered Selkie drifts with the tide;
             his repose disturbed by a wretched cry.
         He floats ashore and sheds his skin;
      transformed into a man again.
selkie 2 (1)
         To bind the Selkie by her side;
his seal-pelt she steals and hides.
Never to frolick unfettered and free
forever a man deprived of the sea.
