Ondines or undines ((Latin: unda — a wave) Fr. Mermaid) are elementals, enumerated as the water elementals in works of alchemy by Paracelsus. They also appear in European folklore as fairy-like creatures; the name may be used interchangeably with those of other water spirits. Undines are said to be able to gain a soul by marrying a man and bearing his child.
obsessing over the movie, Ondine.
It is making me wish for Ireland, seascapes,
and swimming underwater.
