Prologue

This

    is the Legend of
    the Periwinkle Palace

         As told by the Mermaid
                                 Mzphypher

  To the Littlest

      Shell Sea Child.

        As it was told
          in the beginning

amongst the Mermaids-

Silver Shell Sisters
   who live in the sea

Surrounding the
   island called Periwinkle ...

Dedication

"Look and listen

   My Sweet Chelsea Child,

     This Legend is said to be true.
  
         So:

             Here-To-Fore
                    And
                  Forevermore

                           Is
                           My Valentine
                           To you."
On Saint Valentine's Eve
Twixt twilight and night,

The spell
  Of the Silver Shell Sea,-

Enticed a trance!-

Strangely enhanced!
By a looking-glass galaxy! 

And you could see
Further-than-forever,-
Caught!-
In a quiet embrace
Of Sky-in-the-sea-
And
Sea-in-the-sky,
Forever! Interlaced!

'Twas said:
On St. Valentine's Eve,
Should you chance to be
In the
Center
Of the
Silver Shell Sea,
If your heart is pure,
You wish is sure,
To come true!-

Accordingly.

And, if the island called Periwinkle
Should appear in Silver Shell Sea,
The promise thereof:
"This island of love
Will welcome you!-

Royally!"

Long ago
            And
          Far away
                And once
                     In the nick of time,
                                     And long before
                                                This water colored
                                                     Rhapsody reasoned in Rhyme,
                                                                                 On an Island called
                                                                                                       Periwinkle,
                                                                                                           In the
                                                                                                           Center
                                                                                                           Of the
                                                                                                      Silver Shell Sea
                                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                            The legendary
                                                                                                                                        Periwinkle Palace stood
  
                                                                                                                              Surrounded by Segosen trees
 
                                                                                                                      This turquoise  and silver-laced
                                                                                                               Legend of Love,
                                                                                                     Was in an  enchanted sphere,
                                                                                                    An intangible shell
                                                                            With a six-sided spell!
                                                                                Twas visible?-
                                                                              Just once a year!
