    "Then she dived deeply under the dark waters, rising and falling with the waves, till at length she managed to reach the young prince, who was fast losing the power of swimming in that stormy sea. His limbs were failing him, his beautiful eyes were closed, and he would have died had not the little mermaid come to his assistance. She held his head above the water, and let the waves drift them where they would." Edmund Dulac. ‘She Saved the Prince’s Life’, "The Little Mermaid", 1911

10--With me along some Strip of Herbage strown / That just divides the desert from the sown, / Where name of Slave and Sultan scarce is known, / And pity Sultan Mahmud on his Throne. 11: Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough, / A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse—-and Thou / Beside me singing in the Wilderness— / And Wilderness is Paradise enow. --Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, Trans. E. Fitzgerald, Illust. E. Dulac
