She saw the world through imagination,
Seeing, she saw it All for what it was.
Her every glance a Studied notion,
She saw more clearly. And simply because

We may seem to fathom her Poetry,
She is loved all the more for her poems,
And most, the ones Misunderstood, crying,
“Think of us in your melancholy Homes.”

Few images remain as bound by sight,
A Queen Goth dressed quite formally in black,
As if she mourned Immortality’s right
To take her Loved ones – and not give them back.

Look closely at her Face, is there a wry
Little smile there, hiding an Anguished cry?
