Ondine--A Tale of the Sea

Deep oceans dwelt in her soft cadenced
breathing, and the song of the seagull
strained in her hair, and her eyes had the hues
of the sunset as it sank in the distance
in hazel-brown skies.

She came unexpected, entangled in weeds,
caught in the net of a sad fisherman,
and her song had the call of the ocean,
the call of the wave, and was heard

by all creatures that live in the deepó
the fisherman's nets now are crowded galore!
bass, salmon, and lobster, bewitched
by the song of the girl who came from the sea!

They made love in his cabin, off the west coast of Ire,
the girl from the ocean and the sad fisherman.
And her sighs were like magic, like the surf on the beach,
and her moans were like breakers that broke
on the cliffs of his heart.

He was caught in the foam of her spell-binding songs,
caught in the strands of her sand-colored hair,
caught in the breeze of her lips, and the fish

in her mouth, as they loved in his cabin
off the west coast of Ire, and the tide
of the ocean, and the wind of the sea,
and the sighs of the girl stole right
into his heart.

Now the cabin lies empty, struck by the wind,
and the waves of the ocean, and the tides
of the sea, and a song that bewitches

can be heard in the distance, those hazel-hued skies,
which glow like the eyes of the girl who came
from the sea.
