I know not of the reason
Why I’m so sad at heart.
A tale of bygone ages
Haunts me and won’t depart.
The air is cool at nightfall
The Rhine courses its way.
The mountain’s peak does sparkle
With evening’s final ray.
The fairest of the maidens
So marvelous up there,
Her golden jewels are shining,
She combs her golden hair
And with her comb so golden,
she sings a song as well
Whose melody is binding
And overpowering spell.
Now in his boat, the boatman
Is seized with savage woe,
He looks up at the mountain
And shuns the rocks below.
So when the waves devour
The boat and man as one;
She sings her final words tonight;
“Fair Lorelei is done”
Adapted from a poem by Heinrich Heine, 1822
