” It is no night to drown in: A full moon, river lapsing
Black beneath bland mirror sheen,
The blue water-mists dropping Scrim after scrim like fishnets
Though fishermen are sleeping
The massive castle turrets Doubling themselves in a glass
All stillness. Yet these shapes float…
…Deep in your flux of silver
These great goddesses of peace.
Stone, stone, ferry me down there. ”
Title quote by Sylvia Plath; excerpt from Sylvia’s Plath poem “Lorelei”.
