Queen of the Sea
by Monica Gutierrez de Kiy
Where upon the Earth She was born,
Peace reigns in Silence; The Queen of the Sea
Guards her aquarary – an undying treasury –
Her marine oasis of seaweed and salt water;
And welcomes within her own hands
The fishes which do gather.
The Queen of the Sea keeps her vwatch upon the passings
Of the boats which come, The boats which go,
The furtive kiss of foam and tide;
And in Silence whispers forth New Law:
That no one despoil the Dwelling of Whales,
That no one dare come upon the Mermaids,
And at the birth of each morning he remember
Which repeats the miracle Of the very creation of life..
