Aloja, the water nymph can be found only around the fresh water springs of Majorca. 
She simmers red by the light of the moon.

The fountains mingle with the rivers,
and the rivers with the ocean
The winds of heaven mix forever with sweet emotion
For nothing in the world is single
All things by a law divine meet and mingle
Why not I with thine?

See the mountains kiss high heaven
and the waves clasp one another,
No sister flower would be forgiven
if she distained her brother.
And the sunlight clasps the earth
And the moonbeams kiss the sea
What are all these kissings worth
if you kiss not me?

-Love's Philosophy by Percy Bysshe Shelley
