The Forsaken Merman - Matthew Arnold
verse sung by Anne Maria Clarke
Audio production David Johnson & Anne Maria Clarke
Come away, away children Come children, come down!
The hoarse wind blows coldly; Lights shine in the town.
She will start from her slumber When gusts shake the door;
She will hear the winds howling, Will hear the waves roar.
We shall see, while above us The waves roar and whirl,
A ceiling of amber, A pavement of pearl.
Singing: "Here came a mortal, But faithless was she!
And alone dwell for ever The kings of the sea."
