Jessica’s Weekly Poetry Post

Hello everyone!

I’m starting something new today. I’ve written about my poetry in past blog posts, and I thought it would be fun to share a poem once a week. I don’t claim to be a fantastic poet, and I haven’t really written in the past few years. All of what I will share was written in high school/college (unless I decide to write something new). I’ll try to give you a little back story on each piece.

The poem I am going to share this week was written in college. I took a creative writing course, and each week was a new type of poetry. This was a Villanelle attempt, although if I remember correctly, I missed something in the structure of the poem…so if you’re a Villanelle expert, forgive me.

Enjoy! 🙂


The Siren’s Song Floats on Ship Sails

The siren’s song floats on ship sails,
drawing in a sailor’s final sigh,
for temptations always prevail.

A harmony impossible to decline,
when the course goes awry,
the siren’s song floats on ship sails.

Once truth and song combine,
on strength, the men cannot rely,
for temptations always prevail.

Once wise men, naively blind,
believe beauty is an ally,
the siren’s song floats on ship sails.

Allowing the humming to entwine,
unknown this is the last goodbye,
for temptations always prevail.

And you, sailors must keep your mind,
cover your ears so you can deny.
The siren’s song floats on ship sails,
for temptations always prevail.



That’s all I have for you today.
