Beckoning you for your glance,
A spell is cast upon thee,
For now you will go deep within the weed,
Lost for eternity.
My interpretation of Jenny Greenteeth as a seductive figure luring the innocent by her entrancing spell. In other words, the enticing water seducing children and adults not realising the green danger lurking just below.
The English folklore tale of Jenny Greenteeth, with green skin and sharp teeth. Also, known by the name Jinny Greenteeth, or wicked Jenny. The tale was inspired to scare children not to venture into water, for Jenny Greenteeth will pull you down below the weeds drowning you and capturing your soul forever.
