UNDINE

A water sprite

a man one night

Adopted for

his daughter,

But for her bed,

she always said,

she much preferred

the water.

“Undine.”

VASHKA

Sturdy and strong

he stalked along,

And came

upon a tree,

Out of the ground

he swung it round,

So strong

a man was he.

“Vashka with the Bear’s Ear.”

From Norwegian Fairy Tales.
