Thought they only were

Struck with grief you were, Daniel, and —

Thought they only were

Thought they only were

Thought they only were

Thought they only were

The day your mother cut Sybil mermaid hair,

And stood with a stranger, and Daniel was smiling at the door.

They frowned and said tsk-tsk you willfully

And with cruel despair, when you slunk —

Beneath the longer piano strings, and sobbed

Yes, until my lungs hiccupped now for air today.
