The enchanted pool

Heyday holidays
summertime longer than finger counting hours
shrimp of a boy with his net

prisoner of pirates
walking the fallen tree trunk blind
lagoon lapped toes

space-time sorcery
no newts or sticklebacks to lure
only mermaids and sprites

hypnotic sway of weeds
below a drowned witch waves at him
spellbound ’til the homeward call
