The Light Princess by George Macdonald book review

Light Princess by George Macdonald

She contains no mass when out of water. The light princess.

She has no gravity. The light princess.

Where did her weight go? The light princess.

Somewhat contented to shed no tears. The light princess.

Her beloved lake is drained. She must sacrifice a prince. Only after he is dead does she cry for him. The light princess.

What does this short story mean?

Some of my highlights:
