The "Dark Heart of Dunwich" is piece of a Suffolk folklore, the origins of which appear to lie in the 12th century. The legend tells of how Eva, a Dunwich maiden due to be married to the son of a local landowner, fell instead for a good-looking local cad, who had sex with her and then deserted her, running off to sea. After waiting in vain for her lost love to return, she cut out her heart and hurled it into the sea. However, according to the legend, she was unable to die, and still haunts the area, particularly around the constantly shifting beach. The heart itself, believed to be similar in appearance to a wooden heart, is believed to wash up occasionally, and bring great misfortune onto anyone who picks it up and keeps it.


Cut your heart and throw it
into the sea abyss
waves wash away this sadness
about what not to return

If you find a heart on the shore
please don’t take it in any way
wooden heart of maiden
will bring you only suffering
Maiden wooden heart
Tear yourself apart

Bell ringing from the bottom
will say - the maiden is close
beautiful as Aphrodite
awful as Leviathan

Dreams are ruined temples
at the bottom of rotten sea
what the foam does not swallow
the maiden wooden heart
