A ghostly apparition on shoreline I spied,
Pacing to and fro through deep hours of night.
I thought from my window I captured her cry
From what must have been a terrible fright.
Dressed all in white from an era long gone
Stream of tears from my eyes I did shed.
Distress in her step and the pipers last song
This lover to her death must’ve led.
Legend exists of a star-crossed romance
Ending in the most tragic of ways.
They claim it occurred by strange circumstance
Young lovers they drowned in the bay.
When the shock finally passed nothing, but sorrow did I feel
There was nothing I could offer for her wounds I could not heal.
