The secrets within

The pool in the garden holds secrets within
The man who discovers them is certain to win
If you get it just right, and the practice takes year
A beautiful woman just sometimes appears
To the man with the pool she is drawn without hope
As though she were tied to the end of a rope
And if before dusk she is safe in his bed
And in less than a week they are legally wed
She will bear him three children and when they fly the nest
She’ll return to her pool for a very long rest
