An Unlikely Event.---- Heroic Stanza
Sage are the waters of the murky swamp
Where water nymphs and dragon fly play
That slumbers within the depth of reeds
And awaken to mermaids song this day.
Such sadness in eyes that shed wet tears
When cupids arrow had broken her heart
For she already had loved yet another
So much she was not prepared to part.
King of swamps by the name of Neptune
`Twas he that she had promised her hand
Let no other sample the fruits of her love
She was only free for her Kings command.
Who was that cupid to have interfered
Did he not know he was false to a King
He dares to seduce an innocent maid
Would he harm a poor bird on the wing.
All the sea horses all the Kings men
Had come to rescue her pure vanity
Cupid that was is now turned to stone
Named Eros within Londons sanctuary.
