Saturday (oops, Sunday) Shorts: The Prince & The Sea

The Prince and the Sea by Emily CarrollSince I completely forgot what day it was (con will do that to you: North American Discworld con report coming tomorrow), a very short Saturday Short for this week, posted late Sunday evening.

The Prince and the Sea is a delightful (and, be warned, very dark) little illustrated poem about a prince and his mermaid love by Emily Carroll that I discovered last week while browsing the web. It’s so small that to say much more about it would spoil it, so take a few minutes to enjoy.

If you have a Decemberists album to put on in the background while you read, “The Mariner’s Revenge Song” or “Shanty for The Arethusa” would be perfect accompaniments.
