I am such an idiot, almost 4 years on DA and i still do not know how to submit poetry.

Well, I am actually painting a sad mermaid in a pond and while painting, this little unpretentious poem just imposed itself for when the painting will be done.

I am constantly writing these days, some of you know that and get my little poems. Actually I sing these little ditties while painting that is why it rimes, much easier to sing it.
It will go to scraps of course, but i just wanted to share what I do while i paint.

I don't know if I will succeed this difficult painting (water and such), but if I do, the dedications is promised

The current mermaid head is of an old painting

maybe someone just needs to pick up that poor little mermaid and dust her off, and then she won't be so sad! :iconpetplz:

Also, you are not an idiot. You might want to put the poem in the description for the blind. They can read your work that way (special internet reader). Also, the Google spider can read your poem (publicity).
