SONG OF THE DAUGHTERS OF CELEUS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Deep the well and dark the water
Last Line: Hers who has the brightest eyes.
Subject(s): Water; Wells


Deep the well and dark the water,
Far we let our pitchers down.
Prisoned water, prisoned water,
Fill the gleaming pitchers brown;
Fill and brim and sparkle after;
Pools of sunlight edged with laughter
Wait their guest in Celeus' town.

When we lean above the water,
Imaged in the twilight lies
One who comes for Celeus' daughter,
Kindly brave and kindly wise.
Shadowy layers of darkness cover
Him, the coming lord and lover --
Hers who has the brightest eyes.
