….wild is the wind…creative freedom is the seed….
by: Oscar Wilde
- 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.
- Yet, though my lips shall praise her without cease,
- Even to kiss her feet I am not bold,
- Being o’ershadowed by the wings of awe,
- Like Dante, when he stood with Beatrice
- Beneath the flaming Lion’s breast, and saw
- The seventh Crystal, and the Stair of Gold.
