The Man Young and Old: III. The Mermaid

A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.

William Butler Yeats


  1. tessa! first of all i love your blog soooo much! and second of all thanks for following me cause now i found your blog to follow and look at! and third, how did you get that mermaid to move? i have a ton of pictures that can do that but i cant figure out how to upload them and still make them move! let me know! thanks

    1. hi teresa! thanks for looking at my blog! i love yours too!
      it took me a while to figure out how to do it - you have to copy the URL of the website where the image is moving and when you say upload pictures there is an option of the left that says "from this URL" and then you paste the URL in the box - blogspot seems pretty picky about what kind of websites they allow so you have to find the right one.
      let me know if you can get it to work!
      love, tessa
