Seal Mother Retold by Rose English

This new book has been a long time in coming. Seal Mother is the re-telling of a Selkie folktale many cultures have versions of the story of the seal maiden who comes onto the land, sheds her skin and takes on a human form. This is my original story and the one that inspired the children’s book ‘Seal Mother ~ A Selkie Tale in Verse’.

The seal watches over
the child on the sand.
Her lovely young daughter
born of the land.
The girl sits on a rock
with her feet in the water,
Not yet aware
she’s the pretty seal’s daughter.
