“Ah, he doesn't know that it was I who saved his life!' thought the little mermaid. "I carried him over the sea to the forest where the temple stands; I hid in the foam and waited to see if anyone would come. And I saw the beautiful girl whom he loves more than me!" Then the mermaid sighed deeply, for she could not weep. "The girl belongs to the sacred temple, he said. She will never return to the world, they will never meet again, but I am with him, I see him every day, I will care for him, love him, give him my life!"”
“She saw the bright sun, and hundreds of beautiful, translucent creatures hovering in the air above her. She could see the ship's white sails through these beings, and the red clouds in the sky; their voices were melodious but seemed to be of another world, so that no human ear could hear them and no earthly eye could see them. Their own lightness bore them up through the air without wings. The little mermaid saw that she too had a body like theirs, and she was rising up and up from the foam. "Where am I going?" she asked, and her voice sounded like that of the beautiful beings, so other-worldly that no earthly music could suggest its sound. "To join the daughters of the air!" they replied.”
“Once more she looked at the prince, with her eyes already dimmed by death.”
