barefootsong: Many stars and galaxies. (across the universe)
[personal profile] barefootsong
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Uncertain-aged Miss Thereabouts,
  Tough fossil of her teens,
Has lifted up with saving hand
  The ruined Smithereens.

Down the dark steps of debt that hand
  Sped like an angel's wing,
Deep-dowered with gold, and for itself
  Brought back a golden ring.

Ah lovely Lucy Lovandove,
  That ring's a snake, and means
Woe without end: therein lies crushed
  Thy heart—to smithereens.

       ~ "Smithereens" by Dante Gabriel Rossetti

About the girl

The random musings of a librarian with a passion for reading (duh), a vast curiosity about the world, and a penchant for noticing things most people don't (like the way sunlight falls through the leaves on a tree).
