Yes, it's in the poem "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil"; she's the "River-woman's daughter", who pulls him into the water. He escapes, but returns and captures her.View attachment 6078View attachment 6079
That cover you show is interesting, S-eS. "Edited by Christina Scull & Wayne G. Hammond", "Illustrated by Pauline Baynes".
Baynes illustrated the original edition of 1962, while Scull & Hammond did their annotated edition in 2014 (as per Wikipedia).
My Unwin Hyman / Unwin Paperbacks edition is a 1990 "New Reset Format", and the illustrations are by Roger Garland.
