Lyrics

Ligeia 

Ligeia! Ligeia! 
My beautiful one 
Whose harshest idea 
Will to melody run 
O! is it thy will 
On the breezes to toss? 
Or, capriciously still, 
Like the lone albatross, 
Incumbent on night 
(As she on the air) 
To keep watch with delight 
On the harmony there? 

Ligeia! wherever 
Thy image may be 
No image shall sever 
Thy music from thee. 
Thou hast bound many eyes 
In a dreamy sleep 
But the strains still arise 
Which thy vigilance keep 
The sound of the rain 
Which leaps down to the flower 
And dances again 
In the rhythm of the shower 

Go! breathe on their slumber 
All softly in ear 
The musical number 
They slumbered to hear 
For what can awaken 
An angel so soon 
Whose sleep hath been taken 
Beneath the cold moon 
As the spell which no slumber 
Of witchery may test 
The rhythmical number 
Which lulled him to rest
