      By Joseph Campbell
      George Borrow in his Lavengro
      Tells us of a Welshman, who
      By some excess of mother-wit
      Framed a harp and played on it,
      Built a ship and sailed to sea,
      And steered it home to melody

      The ancient songs
      Pass deathward mournfully.

      Cold lips that sing no more, and withered wreaths,
      Regretful eyes, and drooping breasts and wings—
      Symbols of ancient songs
      Mournfully passing
      Down to the great white surges,
      Watched of none         - -
      Save the frail sea-birds
      And the lithe pale girls,
      Daughters of Okeanos.
