Overture
To Sold: Three Tragic Lives—Vain, Prodigal and Penitent


The night I was married

And in my marriage bed

There come a fierce sea captain

And stood by my bed stead.

His men, they bound me tightly

With a rope so cruel and strong

And carried me over the waters

To labor for seven years long.

- ‘An Ancient Song’ [1]
