The Faery Melusina Poem

For today’s blog, I have decided to share a poem I have composed about Melusine.   She was a Mermaid Faery Queen from whom many medieval royals claimed descent!

The Faery Melusina

by Maranda Wabik

On a Saturday,

A Faery Queen

Enters a tub.

Her legs become scales.

As her mermaid tail appears.

She floats 

In enchanted waters

Relaxing in the refreshing waves.


Her husband is spying upon her.

A promise broken

A vow forsaken

The truth hidden

Until one day,

Anger leads the husband

To declare his wife,

A monster!

With the realization

Of Raymond’s broken vow,

Melusina abandons

The human world,

Returning to her home of Faery,

The Isle of Avalon!
