THE WRAITHEE'S MESSAGE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Last night before my window came
Last Line: Long weary of my feverish dreams.


Last night before my window came
A wraithie bathed in living flame,
"I am a herald of the night,
I am a lonely, lonely wight.

"Beside the sea a maiden dwells,
Her voice the sound of lighthouse bells,
Her eyes the green of starlit sea,
Her soul a dwelling place for thee.

"Good dreamer, I have touched her heart,
With burning song I touched her heart
And now her dreams are all of thee --
This maiden by the deathless sea."

Oh, lead me hence, good elf of night,
Oh, lead to her signal light;
For I am weary of my dreams,
Long weary of my feverish dreams.
