Not bad! Fraulein literally means 'miss', a dimunitive of frau which means 'lady'. Mistress might be too pejorative. I'd translate it like this:

The young lady stood by the sea

And sighed long and weary,

It touched her so much,

the sunset.

'My lady! Worry not,

it's just an old thing

Before you she goes under

And will return from behind.
