Hills of Lorelei

what you expected

I have

not given.

forgive me

not

I have

been gone

you are

barren

for

I gave little

to fill your

empty sea

flowers will

arrive

nor

fill your heart

with love

as you

pray to

the father

above

bewitching

men

below

sending

them to

their death

it is

this lad

who hath

betrayed

your

heart

It is you

who

must

fill

your

lonely

soul

with

joy

for

such

a

fallen

heart

still

and

forever

sings

its

lullaby

echoed

through

rocks

caves

and

hills

of

Lorelei.

*Inspired by German poet and novelist Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) poem ‘Lore Lay’
