Song
 
Bliss Carman (1861–1929)
 
 
LOVE, by that loosened hair
Well now I know
Where the lost Lilith went
So long ago.
 
Love, by those starry eyes        5
I understand
How the sea maidens lure
Mortals from land.
 
Love, by that welling laugh
Joy claims his own        10
Sea-born and wind-wayward
Child of the sun.
