They Say the Sirens Left the Seas

They say the sirens left the seas
for other suns and skies than these
to hook the hearts and maze the minds
of sailors of unearthly kinds.

They say the sailors searched in vain
from Baffin Bay to Port of Spain
and seagulls swarmed them as they crossed
to shriek in mockery of their loss.

They say, they say, but who can tell?
They say so many lies as well.
The sirens left, no matter how
and all the seas are silent now.
