I Who would be A merman bold Sitti

I
Who would be
A merman bold
Sitting alone
Singing alone
Under the sea
With a crown of gold
On a throne?
II
I would be a merman bold
I would sit and sing the whole of the day
I would fill the sea halls with a voice of power
But at night I would roam abroad and play
With the mermaids in and out of the rocks
Dressing their hair with the white sea flower
And holding them back by their flowing locks
I would kiss them often under the sea
And kiss them again till they kiss""d me
Laughingly laughingly
And then we would wander away away
To the pale green sea groves straight and high
Chasing each other merrily.
III
There would be neither moon nor star
But the wave would make music above us afar
Low thunder and light in the magic night
Neither moon nor star.
We would call aloud in the dreamy dells
Call to each other and whoop and cry
All night merrily merrily.
They would pelt me with starry spangles and shells
Laughing and clapping their hands between
All night merrily merrily
But I would throw to them back in mine
Turkis and agate and almondine
Then leaping out upon them unseen
I would kiss them often under the sea
And kiss them again till they kiss""d me
Laughingly laughingly.
O what a happy life where mine
Under the hollow hung ocean green!
Soft are the moss beds under the sea
We would live merrily merrily..
