My Bohemian Queen

"Lost in Hell, Persephone,
Take her head upon your knee;
Say to her, “My dear, my dear,
It is not so dreadful here.”

ABOUT

thatbohemiangirlWe are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.

~Arthur O'Shaughnessy, "Ode," 1874
