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, and feel 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,’ sounds like a phantom sigh, it strikes the right chord.
Is this lovely maiden evil, her skin’s white as cream?
If so, I feel enchanted, she beckons me closer,
The trees rustle as if to say, ‘Don’t go, it’s a scheme!’
But I feel drawn towards her, everything's a blur!
I feel scores of arms drag me down the lake’s dark depths,
Vile's snake slithers around me, chokes out my last breath.
