...And You Let the River Answer

2. author's note

Ever notice that nymphs and like beings always have poems written about them, and yet rarely seem to have voices themselves? No mere Muse is our Goldberry. Note that the translator can in no way verify nor deny her suggested claim to be an illegitimate child of Osse - denizens of Faerie are rarely "reliable narrators" from a mortal point of view. We also cannot confirm or deny that "there is no other" - some things, I suppose, must remain enigma.

The working title, which doesn't really fit metrically, is from Leonard Cohen's modern but fitting "Suzanne."
