My Darling, We Sat Together
(13 December 1797 – 17 February 1856 / Dusseldorf)

My Darling, We Sat Together

My darling, we sat together,
We two, in our frail boat;
The night was calm o'er the wide sea
Whereon we were afloat.

The Specter-Island, the lovely,
Lay dim in the moon's mild glance;
There sounded sweetest music,
There waved the shadowy dance.

It sounded sweeter and sweeter,
It waved there to and fro;
But we slid past forlornly
Upon the great sea-flow.

'The Specter-Island, the lovely, Lay dim in the moon's mild glance; There sounded sweetest music, There waved the shadowy dance.' shadow meanings, is this the last boat ride across the River Styx, shared by two?
