The legend of Lorelei is very reminiscent of the far more ancient story of the sirens that Odysseus encountered on his return from Troy.
More importantly, we get too caught up in the Old Testament values of money, power, title and pleasure. If you had any of these, you were blessed by God. Christ turned that on its head, although most people still are drawn to it like sailors to Lorelei or Odysseus to the sirens. If that person places his or her money at the service of others, then the person becomes rich, very rich indeed. They detract us from our intentions, goals, and dreams. If we are not careful we may lose focus and fall victim and let them control our lives.
Thank you for sharing your meeting with us! This legend and poem are standard material in German lessons here, I studied it when I was in high school. And of course, these kind of legends just as Greek and Roman myths or other folk tales bear powerful moral lessons. Nice to be reminded of my high school time and this beautiful poem.
But upon looking it up that evening when I got home, I found numerous references to it from a number of folklore and popular culture sources. It is quite enchanting really. IT really is a nudge to get us to focus on higher pursuits than just what we see around us.
The Parable of the Lorelei
Thank you for sharing this. It was a welcome read heading in to the weekend, and a reminder to not be too tempted by the world around me, lest I find myself washed ashore upon the rocks. The Pogues version was one that I had already found. Thanks for pointing it out.

The Pogues song by Philip Chevron conveys beautifully the immense draw of temptation and realisation of value at the last moment possible. My father, a German immigrant to the United States, was a carpenter working for a man who owned land in a very hilly area of NJ. The local township inspector arrived one day and asked the landowner if he had any suggestions for the as yet un-named road on which the homes were being built.
My father suggested Lorelei Rd. I grew up in one of the homes that my father built on this same road and his memory and this story will always be part of me. While I was not familiar with this legend prior to my conversation, I knew the re-telling of it would spark a number of memories among people who already knew it. But yours is definitely the most unique thus far. What I find interesting is that here it pops up again, making me lean a bit closer and listen to it.
How then can I so easily walk this new path? How is it that the temptations just have up and left me?!
This is a good problem to have, I know, yet I am completely undone by it sometimes. Thank you so much for this post and your others, which I read with great delight. Which, thinking about it now, is a pretty cool album title to type on a site about desiring less.

An old legend envisioned dwarfs living in caves in the rock. It first told the story of an enchanting female associated with the rock. In the poem, the beautiful Lore Lay, betrayed by her sweetheart, is accused of bewitching men and causing their death. Rather than sentence her to death, the bishop consigns her to a nunnery.
On the way thereto, accompanied by three knights, she comes to the Lorelei rock. She asks permission to climb it and view the Rhine once again. She does so and thinking that she sees her love in the Rhine, falls to her death; the rock still retained an echo of her name afterwards. Brentano had taken inspiration from Ovid and the Echo myth.
lorelei - Wiktionary
In , Heinrich Heine seized on and adapted Brentano's theme in one of his most famous poems, "Die Lorelei". It describes the eponymous female as a sort of siren who, sitting on the cliff above the Rhine and combing her golden hair, unwittingly distracted shipmen with her beauty and song, causing them to crash on the rocks.
In Heine's lyrics were set to music by Friedrich Silcher in the art song "Lorelei"  that became well known in German-speaking lands.
A setting by Franz Liszt was also favored and dozens of other musicians have set the poem to music.
