The Mythic Muse

This poem by me and accompanying picture by Amy concerns Greek mythology.

The Mythic Muse by LJ Finnigan
Psyche opens a door for you
Echo reflects your surprise
Guinevere offers you her hand
Venus gazes into your eyes
Boreas calls and Ophelia falls
Helen awaits her destiny
Miranda creates a terrible storm
The Daeniads sob with futility

A fairy tale beauty softly sleeps
On Circe’s island we feast on dreams
Penelope faces reality
A doomed lady drifts downstream

Pandora lifts the lid on mischief
The water nymphs ebb and flow
The mermaid combs her luxurious hair
Persephone leads you below
