The Mermaid
Vocabulary : The sea

Mermaids appear in the oldest legends of some of the world's oldest cultures. Sailors returning from far-off lands and seas often spoke of seeing mermaids and 'sea wives'. Alexander the Great, it was said, had several adventures with beautiful sea maidens, visiting the bottom of the sea in a glass globe. According to myth, mermaids have no soul and in folk tradition they are sad and lonely creatures. One story tells of the beautiful mermaid of the Holy Island of Iona, off Scotland, who visited daily an unknown saint who lived there. She was in love with him and wanted the soul that mermaids lack. The saint told her that, to gain a soul, she must renounce the sea. This was impossible, so she left in despair and never returned. But her tears remained and formed the grey-green pebbles which are found only on the island.
