A Man Young And Old: III. The Mermaid

William Butler Yeats

A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.

Μια γοργόνα βρήκε έναν νεαρό κολυμβητή,
Τον πήρε για δικό της,
Πίεσε το κορμί της στο κορμί του,
Γέλασε· και καθώς βυθιζόντουσαν
Ξέχασε μες στην σκληρή της ευτυχία
Ότι ακόμα και οι εραστές πνίγονται
Mermaid
