Is the Vile Evil? Watch out, she may lure you to your death with her melodious song.
What is this bewitching song? Who is singing so sweet?
I squint into the mist; have an odd connection -
Who’s splish-splashing in the lake? My heart misses a beat
As the black water glistens from the moon’s reflection.

I spot a lone figure in the water’s icy flow,
Her sweet song weaves around me, beckons me forward,
The moonlight shows off the nymph's long blond strands all aglow,
‘Join me,’ A phantom sigh striking the right chord.

Is this lovely maiden evil? Her skin’s white as cream,
If so, oh so enchanting; she beckons me closer,
The trees rustle as if to say, ‘Don’t go, it’s a scheme!’
But I'm drawn towards her. Everything's a blur!

Scores of arms drag me down into the lake’s dark depths,
Vile's snake slithers around me choking out my last breath.
