Soft lips, wet and bluish
A mouth so still, set in a pitiful shape
A sorrow laden chest covered
Sorrow, for a loved father, for a wretched love
a watery grave was gifted,
washing away madness

You glided down; fabrics for a maiden
they obscured you in the murky depths
A maiden, not a breeder of sins
Pansies caught in your hair
What do you think about?

Soft hands, pruned and paled
Listless arms embraced death
Hitting the bottom makes the silt restless
Ophelia, you sing no more.
Shakespeare always inspires me and my favorite character he ever created was Ophelia. Her death was romantic and wistful. I wanted to recreate that with this poem. I hope you enjoy it whoever you may be! And I hope you get my references if you've read the play!

Ophelia belongs to the play 'Hamlet' written by Shakespeare.

This is a flawless tapestry, with references from the play cunningly woven in!!! We need to find a Preview Image for it...you can use that famous Pre-Raphaelite painting, it's in the public domain!!!

Thank you, Chaos! Ophelia is definitely my favorite character of Shakespeare's easily.

I like her dad, Polonius!:D
>..have you ever seen the 1948 Laurence Olivier film version of Hamlet? It is the BEST--and Jean Simmons as Ophelia is heart-breakingly beautiful....

I have NOT seen that! I've only seen the one with Mel Gibson. Oh he was such a good Hamlet, and Helena Bonham-Carter was a beautiful Ophelia. :heart: I love her.

That was a pretty good version--but the Olivier 1948 one is truly awesome--VERY spooky, black-and-white!
