The Rhythm of the Tides : Layla's Dance

Layla flies above the waves
Her golden fingers they weave a spell
As she sings and she dances
To the rhythm of the tides.

“I am mist-borne,” she sings
And the mist it hears her song
As it rises and it falls
Forming jewels upon her wings.

Layla flies above the waves
Her golden fingers they weave a spell
As she sings and she dances
To the rhythm of the tides.

“I am sea-foam,” she sings
And the sea-foam hears her song
As it crashes against the rocks
Setting a crown upon her head.

Layla flies above the waves
Her golden fingers they weave a spell
As she sings and she dances
To the rhythm of the tides.

“I am sea life,” she sings
And the corals hear her song
For they build a coloured column
As a sceptre for her hand.

Layla flies above the waves
Her golden fingers they weave a spell
As she sings and she dances
To the rhythm of the tides.

Layla’s lips they blow love
Cross the vast and yawing seas
While the mermaids they start dancing
In a chorus they sing her name
“Ya Layla! Ya Layla! Ya Layla!
Long live our beloved queen!
Long may she reign upon the seas!
Long may she prosper upon the waves!”

And Layla’s eyes they dance
And Layla’s heart it sings
As she halts and then she sways
To the rhythm of the tides.

Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.

NRF: This story captivated me from the very first chapter. And although it tells the same old story of good verses evil, it is also a potent story of love and betrayal between two very different personalities.

Bad: The Setting was applicable to the characters, the readers can relate to the story.The author use the POV which the readers can feel, and the author keeps hook in every chapter and it will make you to rethink about everything.It was a hooking story, since from the beginning to the end, it has many...
