Week 2 Poem

This one is from Andrea (one of her favorites). We haven't quite figured out how she can post directly to the blog with her own account yet, so I'm doing this one, but if someone knows maybe you can give us a hand. We're both REALLY new at this blogging stuff. And of course, once she figures it out, we can all bug her to start putting her stories up for us to read!! Ok, so here's your weekly dose of poetry:

A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.

----William Butler Yeats
