She has flowers in her hair

“She has flowers in her hair
orchid blossoms and oleander
She speaks softly to the moon
her words ancient and beautiful and
Forbidding:
Ophelia! Ophelia!
the tides: she calls her own
her tears are tiny songs,
lamentations that fall from her eyes;
memories that the earth drinks up.”
