A NORTHER>T LEGEND. (Prom the German of Uhland.) 1 There sits a lovely maiden, 1 The ocean murmuring nigh Shs throws the hook, and watches; t The fishes pass it by. ( A ring with a reel jewel, J Is sparkling oii It or hincl; i Upon the hook, she binds it, And flings it from the land, I Uprises from the-water A hand like ivory fair. What gleams upon its finger ? The golden ring is there. ( Uprises from the bottom A young and handsome knight; In golden scales he rises, That glitter in the light. The maid is pale with terror— Nay, Knight of Ocean, nay, It was not thee I wanted; Let go the ring, I pray." All, maiden, not to fishes The bait of gold is thrown; r The ring shall never leave me, And thou must bemy own.
