The river Lethe has always captivated me. An old poem from last January.

The River Lethe

Come to me, it seems to call

Come to me, it seems to call The river as white as winter after fall,

Come to me, it seems to call The river as white as winter after fall I will erase every bad memory

Come to me, it seems to call The river as white as winter after fall I will erase every bad memory Come to me,

Come to me, it seems to call The river as white as winter after fall I will erase every bad memory Come to me, come to me,

Come to me, it seems to call The river as white as winter after fall I will erase every bad memory Come to me, come to me, come to me

Come to me, it seems to call The river as white as winter after fall I will erase every bad memory Come to me, come to me, come to me And take a dip in the river Lethe

Poplars grow along the bank,

Poplars grow along the bank, Ones that Hades did make

Poplars grow along the bank, Ones that Hades did make From the limbs of a nymph he fancied

Poplars grow along the bank, Ones that Hades did make From the limbs of a nymph he fancied To save her from the vengeful Persephone

Her consent the nymph did not give,

Her consent the nymph did not give, But change her Hades did

Her consent the nymph did not give, But change her Hades did All the nymph wanted was to visit the surface

Her consent the nymph did not give, But change her Hades did All the nymph wanted was to visit the surface Now she uses her new bodies for her purpose

They snake their way up the hills of the Underworld, Along the banks of the river Lethe

The dead who get lost here will never be found

The dead who get lost here will never be found So come,

The dead who get lost here will never be found So come, come and drown

The dead who get lost here will never be found So come, come and drown Drown out your sorrows with ease

Oh, won't you please?

Oh, won't you please? Come,

Oh, won't you please? Come, take a dip in the river Lethe.
