Long-eyed, blue lotus ladies with gentle smiles, though you do not see us, there has been a glance from these long eyes. Speak and console us.

A lady appearing to those who have come here presents her face and gives her heart, but she does not speak of her intentions. Alas, what purpose can be served by only seeing her?

We looked at the heart-shattering fair damsels on the rock wall. They seemed as if they stood there looking forward wondering where their lord had gone.
