Lorelei, the River Queen
Took the advice given. And I did need one so...here you go.
Hypnotics and water
She is the embodiment of water, the ancient goddess of the Rhine river and the seas. She is The Lorelei. In German myth, Lorelei was said to be a strikingly beautiful distressed maiden with locks of gold who sat upon the rock awaiting the return of her lover. Her unfaithful lover never returned, so she threw herself off of a cliff headfirst into the water, leading her to death. According to the legend, Lorelei’s spirit remains sitting on the rock to this day combing her beautiful long hair and singing a soft melody. Apparently, her looks are so charming that sailors passing though are distracted and before they know it, shipwrecked. They say that Lorelei lingers there seeking revenge against her lover, the rocks echoing her name. She is the ruler of sirens; they were started through her as was the story of the Greek spirit Echo. She now lives till the end of time, bitter with her ending.
The word “lureln” is a local Rhineland dialect for “murmur”. “Luren” is a German word for “lurk”. “Ley” is a Celtic word meaning rock. So, the literal translation of “Lorelei” is either “lurking rock” or “murmuring rock”. She fills the water, the river queen, and the waves obey her every whim! She brings ships to their doom through her hypnosis. And she sits, her sentence brought down on men for the hate she bears.
