Siren’s Song

In the rush of ocean to shore
faint murmurings, an ancient song
dancing at dusk, silver-finned waves
memories transcending time.

I expect logic, a story--
receive an elegy to simpler days
when we controlled less
lived well, loved purer.

Who sings this failed song?
Pastoral rhapsody, sea siren
promising eternity wrapped in heaven
paper to lure, a baited trap.
