Away and away to the black-bottomed sea
sailed her man on a whim and a wave.
"No creature above or below escapes me!"
was the promise his blushing bride gave.
Harpoon in hand, she stood vigil by day
and by night cast a net in her dreams.
Her veil was the mist, trimmed in fine ocean spray,
and her tears ran in saltwater streams.
