The waves speak quietly to me
When the tempest sleeps deep beneath.
I wish that I could give to you
The sun before it weds the west.
My tears mingle soft with the sea
Though I dream that you could taste them.
Lay with me our bridal bed
Dance a moonlit path thereon
Lay with me above the dead
That drift with tides kiss upon.
My undine beauty, thou hast seen
The coral kingdoms, silence, peace
The moon and stars I would forsake
To gaze into thy starry eyes
The azure sky seems not so deep
As azure oceans, amidst sleep.
