94                 THE LIGHT PRINCESS.
Love hath made me strong to go, For thy sake, to realms below. Where the water's shine and hum Through the darkness never come : Let, I pray, one thought of me Spring, a little well, in thee; Lest thy loveless soul be found Like a dry and thirsty ground."
" Sing again, prince. It makes it less tedious," said the princess.
But the prince was too much overcome to sing any more, and a long pause followed.
"This is very kind of you, prince," said the princess at last, quite coolly, as she lay in the boat with her eyes shut
"I am sorry I can't return the compliment," thought the prince; "but you are worth dying for, after all."
Again a wavelet, and another, and another flowed over the stone, and wetted both the prince's knees ; but he did not speak or move.
