THE LADY FROM THE SEA
An Old Legend
As I walked by the sea one day
A voice came from above:
“Free your mind and find your way
Back to your lost love.”
Then out of the sea of sighs,
Out of the sunlit sea,
A golden girl with laughing eyes
Came dancing up to me.
Her flowing hair fell to her knees
And round her body blew.
I stood entranced, though ill at ease,
And cried—Can this be true?
“Doubt not!” she said. “You do me wrong!
All’s real as real it seems!
—I am the One for whom you long,
The Lost Love of your dreams.”
