Re: Welcome new Voyager fans!

They're too beautiful, so I'm posting the lyrics to

SONG TO THE SIREN
Long afloat on shipless oceans/I did all my best to smile
'Til your singing eyes and fingers/Drew me loving to your isle
And you sang/Sail to me/Sail to me/Let me enfold you
Here I am/Here I am/Waiting to hold you

Did I dream you dreamed about me?/Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning/Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow
O my heart, O my heart shies from the sorrow"

I am puzzled as the newborn child/I am troubled at the tide
Should I stand amid the breakers?/Or should I lie with Death my bride?
Hear me sing, "Swim to me, Swim to me, Let me enfold you
Here I am, Here I am, Waiting to hold you

The beginning of that song often comes to my mind when I'm in the space faring mood.

Hey, there's no dreamy smiley.
