Emerald Eyes



Emerald Eyes


Careful!
Lest her emerald eyes see you!
For she will catch you unawares;
Her grasp is worse than a pack
Of hungry grizzly bears!

Careful!
Lest she catches your scent,
For on the lives of men she is bent
On taking her revenge!

Careful!
Lest word of your presence reaches her ears,
For then flee will all your fears,
For what is to come we will never hear!

Her tale remains unknown; conjectures have failed
For to seek the truth, one must, her, meet
And none have ever returned,
Neither individual men, nor entire kings' fleets!

Careful!
Her emerald eyes glow in the dead of the night.
She will catch you unawares,
And for your life will begin your fight!
