Siren Song – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Magnetic – Word of the Day




Siren Song

I thought I heard an orchestra
playing sonatas in the wood
on the most perfect of days,
when the sun was still high,
and the rich smell of honey in the air.
Such a fecund aria followed
and mellowed through the trees,
a gentle siren song
drawing me onwards,
till I chanced on a clearing,
and there you were,
radiant, wistful,
music to my eyes,
