My darling, swim over to me – closeup

My 50th post, yay! Over the last weeks I managed to gain five six more readers – which makes a total of 5, update, 6 readers now! *cheer* This excludes feed-readers as well as people who manually visit my blog, since wordpress doesn’t count them. Anyway, thanks for following/reading to all of you, I appreciate it! :)

Here are the promised closeups for my princess. The face is 100% size, the other parts are slightly resized. As always, click for fullsized image :) I also decided to post the lyrics – I guess as old as this song is, there should be no copyright issues.

Once was a Prince and a Princess
that loved one another so dear,
each other they could not possess,
too deep was the water clear.

“Oh dear heart, can you not swim here,
my darling swim over to me,
I will light two candles, have no fear,
by their light the way you’ll see.”

An evil fairy heard their planning,
pretending to be sound asleep,
she blew out the candles, damning
the Prince to drown in the deep.

It was on a Sunday morning,
the people were happy and gay,
except for the Princess, mourning,
with tears in red eyes, this day.

“Oh mother, my dearest mother,
my head feels as were split in two;
I’d like to stroll somewhere other,
perhaps by the water blue.”

The mother alone went to church,
the daughter to the shore did run,
she walked so long til her search
for a fisherman was done.

“Oh fisherman, dear fisherman,
would you like to earn a great prize?
Your net in the water today can
fish me a Prince where he lies.”

He threw the net in the water,
to the bottom so deep it sank,
he fished long for the King’s daughter,
then brought the Prince to the bank

The fisher’d fished for a long time,
before the dead Prince he’d found.
“Now look here, my dear maiden fine,
here’s your Prince in my net bound.”

Her two arms cradled the body,
and she kissed his cold lips so pale,
“oh lips could you but speak to me
again my heart would be hale.”

Her robe around herself she wound,
and then leaped into the deep sea.
“Dear father, mother, I have found
my grave that you shall never see.”

The bells they tolled throughout the land,
of woe and want were heard loud cries,
two Kings’ children lay close at hand,
both never again to rise.

  1. The closeup is really needed, the details like the fabulous lace or the jewellry would be lost. I love those lips! The candle alone would make a good birthday greeting card….
