Song to the Siren

Long afloat on shipless oceans, I did all my best to smile
‘Til your singing eyes and fingers drew me loving to your isle
And you sang: Sail to me, Sail to me, Let me enfold you
Here I am, Here I am, Waiting to hold you

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning. Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
For you sing: Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow
O my heart, O my heart shies from the sorrow

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I am as troubled as the tide.
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or should I lie with Death my bride?
Hear me sing: Swim to me, Swim to me, Let me enfold you
Here I am, Here I am, Waiting to hold you
