A Nymph Named Joanna Newsom

"We sailed away on a winter's day
with fate as malleable as clay;
but ships are fallible, I say,
and the nautical, like all things, fades.

And I can recall our caravel:
a little wicker beetle shell
with four fine masts and lateen sails,
its bearing on Cair Paravel."

Joanna Newsom seems like a kindred spirit to you. Also, she has a song called "Sadie" that I frequently sing to my friend's baby (of the same name). And another also, I'm commenting on your blog.
