Cross't storm-tossed seas she gazed tearfully Imprisoned lonely ‘pon a barren isle Her haven of mortal turmoil a stone-hewn tower What crashing might rumbled fearfully Rumbling thunderclouds bless waves beyond wild A night alight with wondrous power
Cross’t the Deep a lonely Hero traversed Cross't peaks and the treach’rous watery expanse Hands rock-steady guiding yon ship full-tilt Despite magical blight and unholy curses Ill-winds gird Sylphs and Nymphs fatal dance Mermaids and Sirens sultry voices doth lilt
Wind's howl encircles threatening abandon O'er broken portals her eyes sought beyond hope Coming Forth by Dawn's peerless reason Knowledge and Wisdom Born deride attention Her sorrow defies form for with Furies she must cope Tempests threaten nigh despite apparent season
Until a lone ship then appeared Battered and toss't sails torn crew lost Captain and Hero reckoned dead through night’s dark An End to his soujourn embarked o'er a year Set 'pon the beauty of her heart enamored of frost With loving warmth beneath emotions so stark
Down cold stone stairs she flit clattering echoes Wrenching astern Hero navigated shallows Flinging aside portals skies open wide Powers observe Divine Law to impose Human opposition births calumny and woes Hearts twinned bolster strong towers therein to reside
Dark clouds released lightning 'pon trembling Earth As Hero and Maiden met betwixt Reality and Dream Arms wide hearts doth pray for love's sweet release While eyes dance afire yearning arms cherish mirth Struck squarely Tower crumbled ashes billowing cold steam As two become One hearts portion of Love increased.
