O IS NOT FOR OPRAH!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Sunshine and summer breezes continued throughout the weekend in Florida. Thank you all for stopping by and commenting. Welcome new friends from the A-Z challenge. I appreciate you dropping by. I hope you enjoy today's post. More of a riddle today, but still full of my original touches.
With chestnut tresses flowing, and eyes as blue as the Caribbean Sea, she is a woman of no ordinary means, Sensual yet pure. Sexual yet innocent. She is the love interest of the future King of Denmark.
Her love is frail and genuine. Alas, he is crass and is uncaring, wrestling with internal demons.
He bares all to her, leaving her with misconceptions of his love. But he does love her, although there is much contempt in his heart.
Her father’s manipulation ends in his death by the prince’s own hand. She in turn looses her mind with grief and speaks in riddles and rhymes, singing of death and loss of virginity. Her obsession over wild flowers carries her to a nearby brook.
A tragic accident and she dies at the hand of a snapping willow branch, drowning in a river of tears.
Who could this anguished maiden be? A look into England’s most famous literary treasure has the answer you seek.
One in a collection of honored plays ... W.S. was his name in Elizabethan days. With the playwright revealed, the narrowing is simple. Do you know .... Why it’s Hamlet’s Ophelia, low and behold.
