Poetry Friday: Madonna Mia by Oscar Wilde

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: What's Good for Me by Lucy Woodward

A lily-girl, not made for this world's pain,
With brown, soft hair close braided by her ears,
And longing eyes half veiled by slumberous tears
Like bluest water seen through mists of rain:
Pale cheeks whereon no love hath left its stain,
Red underlip drawn in for fear of love,
And white throat, whiter than the silvered dove,
Through whose wan marble creeps one purple vein.

- the beginning of Madonna Mia by Oscar Wilde

Ahhh Oscar Wilde, excellent choice.

You know, there is an EXCELLENT play right now in North Hollywood, about the trials of Oscar Wilde.
