Tales Of Brave Ulysses

In the style of

Cream

Lyrics

you thought
the leaden winter
would bring you down
forever

but you rode upon
a steamer
to the violence
of the sun

and the colors
of the sea
blind your eyes
with trembling
mermaids

and you touch
the distant beaches
with tales of
brave ulysses

how his naked ears
were tortured
by the sirens
sweetly singing

for the
sparkling waves
are calling you
to kiss their
white lace necks

and you see a girl's
brown body
dancing through
the turquoise

and her footprints
make you follow
where the sky
loves the sea

and when
your fingers find her
she drowns you
in her body

carving deep
blue ripples
in the tissues
of your mind

tiny purple fishes
run laughing
through your fingers

and you want
to take her with you
to the hard land
of the winter

her name is aphrodite
and she rides
a crimson shell

and you know
you cannot leave her
for you touched
the distant sands

with tales of
brave ulysses
how his naked ears
were tortured
by the sirens
sweetly singing

and the tiny
purple fishes
run laughing
through your fingers

and you want
to take her with you
to the hard land
of the winter
