TWO SONGS AFTER HEARING THE WAGNER STORY-BOOK: 2, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Siegfried, hear us! / give us back the ring!'
Last Line: And he is gone.


"Siegfried, hear us!
Give us back the ring!"
The lady with the shell,
The water-lady with the green hair,
Laughed in the sun
And went into the woods laughing:
He was happy in his heart,
And he had golden hair
Till the sun loved him!
"Siegfried!"
But he will not hear me.
He could talk to birds and rivers,
And he is gone.
