Mermaid


It is a perfect,
Warm
English
 
Summer day. 

The air is heavy with pollen.
 

A mermaid
Is sitting on a rock
At Durdle Dor

In Dorset.
 

A pleasant-looking young man
Is wind-surfing nearby.
A speed boat hums
 
In the distance.
 

At Aston Clinton
There are cucumber sandwiches for tea.

But Aston Clinton
Is nowhere near
Durdle Dor.
