Such a magical song. Great to find the lyrics here from Maggie herself. The theme reminds me of "La belle dame sans merci" - this time a fairy ship with a temptress captain! Or a ship of the dead that witches mortals from this world. There's also a similar theme in "the House Carpenter" (Fairport Convention). This whole album is exquisite...especially the "Traveller's Prayer". Its beauty ends shivers through me. Thank you John, and Maggie. I miss the days in which such music was being made.
