O nymph, o goddess of the shore,
Let the sun’s light last a moment more, That I may, for a moment’s space, Admire the beauty of your face, That I may gaze into your eyes, Where the fire of your passion lies, That I may see your tousled locks Framed here against the sea washed rocks. O let me watch a moment more The tender features I adore. The sun is gone, the day has passed And on the world a shadow’s cast, But no mere shadow can obscure Your beauty; bright and clear and pure.
