#SalemVerse Prompt #12 – Melody

‘Melody’ was the prompt

She sits and waits, atop the waves, and calls into the night



sweet welcome words, and promise sweet, calls travellers to her light

poor weary souls, so far from home, melody spans the seas

port in the storm, her welcome arms, to do with as she please

and in her grasp, her lilting tune, eyes search for welcome land

and hopes there dashed, and vessels smashed, beneath the waves now damned
