I think the topic of river sources once came up with Marianne. I explained to her that faeries have to be careful...
Bathing Nude in lymphic streams
Likely might evoke shrill screams,
If the lymph came from the pores
Of some giant’s canker sores.
Nymphs and faeries surely oughter
Rather bathe in perfumed water
Flowing forth from crystal fountains,
High in mist-beshrouded mountains,
Hid from giants’ prying eyes,
Or from satyrs in disguise.
Only then can faeries frolic,
Splash and sing and safely rollick.
