PCF16: Mermaid’s Song

Surrender to the mermaid’s song;
Listen to her voice sublime.
Your life has been a constant fight—
Oh, my dear, I know you’re tired.
This lullaby shall soothe your fire;
Rest now on this greenest isle.
The war will find you ere too long;
Sleep now under blue moonlight.

Welcome to my Friday afternoon paint chip prompt. There are other paint chip prompts out there, but they’re very precise in what they ask for. Mine is open ~ write a poem, a story, a memory, whatever you like. Take your inspiration this week from Valspar’s “mermaid’s song” and/or “surrender.” Tag your post Paint Chip Friday, or PCF, if you wish. Prompt will continue until December 31.
