The card enclosed with the brooch reads:
"Who would be a mermaid fair, singing alone, combing her hair under the sea, in a golden curl with a comb of pearl, on a throne? I would be a mermaid fair; I would sing to myself the whole of the day; with a comb of pearl I would comb my hair; And still as I comb I would sing and say, Who is it loves me? who loves not me?" - Lord Alfred Tennyson, The Mermaid
