Melusina’s Legacy Poem

For this first post of Poetry Week, I have decided to share a poem I composed about the Faery Queen Melusina.

Melusina’s Legacy

by Maranda Wabik

Melusina is betrayed

Raymond had seen her

Her secret was revealed

She must leave

But she still

Stayed near her children

Crying as a Banshee

When one would perish

Melusina is a Faery Queen

Or Mermaid

Whom princes would

Claim descent from

After her betrayal

By her husband

Melusina built

 Her home in
