"Sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown..."

Just some Saturday night inspiration.

I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me.         

I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.

We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown         
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

-The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
T.S. Eliot, 1917

this one just breaks my heart
Glynis Johns in the 1948 film "Miranda"

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
