2 Andrew Blaeser, Abby Williams, And even Jack Dugdale!

3 Echoing through the gloaming Filled with a magic so strong. The boatman has heard, it has bound him In throes of desire and love. He's blind to the reefs that surround him, He sees but the Maiden above. And now the wild waters awaken Then boat and the boatman are gone. And this is what with her singing, The Lorelei has done. THE LORELEI I wish I knew the meaning, A sadness has fallen on me. The ghost of an ancient legend That will not let me be. The air is cool in the twilight And gently flows the Rhine; A mountain peak in the setting sun Catches the faltering shine. The highest peak still gleaming Reveals enthroned in the air, A Siren lost in her dreaming Combing her golden hair. With golden combs she caresses Her hair as she sings her song ;

4 The Lorelei Theme The theme of this poem is destruction of beauty, due to the Lorelei. The Lorelei uses the sea, which is supposed to be beautiful and part of nature, and turns it into a monstrous killer. She combines her beauty and the sea to lure sailors into crashing into the rocks.
