The Song of the Sirens

Μ y name is Himerope and I’m a Siren. I have wings to fly and I love to sing. My sister Thelxinoe is exactly the same. We live on a tiny island that goes by the name of Anthemoessa, in a meadow full of fra- grant flowers. Whenever we’re not flying up in the sky, we lounge on a rock by the sea and watch the ships go by. We love to sing and play the lyre and the flute.
