31.366 - Mended Heart

Newer Older

They laid their hands upon my head,
They stroked my cheek and brow;
And time could heal a hurt, they said,
And time could dim a vow.
And they were pitiful and mild
Who whispered to me then;
"The heart that breaks in April, child;
Will mend in May again."
Oh, many a mended heart they knew;
So old they were, and wise.
And little did they have to do
To come to me with lies!
Who flings me silly talk of May
Shall meet a bitter soul;
For June was nearly spent away
Before my heart was whole.

-Dorothy Parker, The False Friends

    Did you make the heart? It's beautiful. Why the "A"? (Makes me think of The Crucible, though the context is all wrong)

    I like the poem, too. I can identify with the voice in it.

    And, last but not least, beautifully done image. :) But I already told you somewhere else I think you should do this for a living (if you don't already... do you?)

    Yes, I made the heart. Thanks! The "A" is for my first name, Amy.

    I think you're thinking of Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter.

    No, I don't do this for a living, but thank you for the encouragement :)

    You're absolutely right... I should've just said "Hester Prynne" and been done with it. :)
