"If you are not really there, if you are merely gamboling round me like a mist, may I, too, bid farewell to life, and become a shadow, like you, dear, dear Undine%" Thus calling aloud, he again moved deeper into the stream. "Look round you, ah% pray look round you, beautiful young stranger; why rush on death so madly*" cried the voice, a second time, close by him, and looking on one side, he perceived a little island formed by the flood, and, reclined upon its flowery turf, beneath the high branches of embowering trees, he saw the smiling and lovely Undine." "A rill would leave its misty vale,/ And fortunes wide explore;/ Weary, at length it reached the main,/ And sought its vale no more."--From the German of the Baron de la Motte Fouque. [P. 7.]
