Alternate Author Name(s): Civis Americanus
Subject(s): Fairy Tales

'Twas far away and long ago,
When I was but a dreaming boy,
This fairy tale of love and woe
Entranced my heart with tearful joy;
And while with white Undine I wept
Your spirit,''"ah, how strange it seems,''"
Was cradled in some star, and slept,
Unconscious of her coming dreams.
