The Moormaid

The idea of the moormaid originated in a poem…

The Roaches

Oooh, blowy, we say.
We mean the air
is rushing water.
We stand, submerged,

our hearts beat fast,
we breathe in gasps,
the current pushes
past, through us,

sluices our thoughts
blank, douses us
with cold fire. This
is our element
.

There must be a moormaid
with peat brown hair
and gritstone eyes
who swims in this pale sea,

loops the winking man,
swoops down to the tarn
and whispers to her sister
through its black blown waves.

(Ailsa Holland)
