KESKILIDDE the Riverine Ondine

KESKILIDDE the Riverine Ondine

Published by Pieter Uys
Wherever floweth the water, thou wilst find Keskilidde. She danceth, she diveth, she darteth to and fro in the current and the foam. Lively she appeareth, and in stillness taketh she shape. On a moonlit night, when thou peerest into a pool, then seest thou perchance her face upon it, staring up at thee.

Others of her kin inhabit the marsh, the lake and the great sea. Therefore are those in her family known as Liliçir, Lilisu and Keskiliyake, for their manifestations are manifold, yea, they dwell also in the rain and the dew and upon the high mountains, in the ice and the snow. Indeed numerous are they.

From The Bestiary of Bau
