To wold and weald, to slade and stream;
And all he heard was her soft word
As one adream.

This sea sprite samite-clad,
And my heart for love was bleeding,
But its beating I forbade.

To stars, to hills, to slades, to streams,
And it but held that sorceress fair
As one of dreams.

The wood-perfumes, with sleepy tread,
Tiptoed around my ferny bed:
And far away I heard report
Of one who dimly rode to Court,
The Faery Princess, Eve-Amort.
