The Song of Nimrodel
by Le Chat Noir
Sad, sad your song, ô Nimrodel!
Vainly given your tears and plea –
Among stories of old the wastes
Of love adrift at Sea –
Hear, hear the song of Nimrodel!
The river moans her elegy –
For vessels wrecked and high-sails torn;
For sailors lost at Sea –
Weep, weep and sing for Nimrodel!
She runs beyond the mellyrn tree –
To join the fierce and last embrace
Of lovers lost at Sea –
