I offer my words to fair Melusine, lady
of waters deep and sweet, of river and fountain
and fall, lady of the lost isle, lady of wrath,
I laud you in all your guises, give praise to you
in all your might, O lady of marvels rare and true.
Loyal you have been, vengeful you have been, of all
the pains of the heart you know so very well.
Melusine of many tales, your song compels
the rhymer and the bard; you call with a tender,
brutal sound, you shine like a knife in the firelight.
Lady in white, lady of the fae, Melusine
of lake and heath, of high lands and low, I honor you.
