Dead Before Death

Ah! changed and cold, how changed and very cold!
With stiffened smiling lips and cold calm eyes:
Changed, yet the same; much knowing, little wise;
This was the promise of the days of old!
Grown hard and stubborn in the ancient mould
Grown rigid in the sham of lifelong lies:
We hoped for better things as years would rise,
But it is over as a tale once told.
All fallen the blossom that no fruitage bore,
All lost the present and the future time,
All lost, all lost, the lapse that went before:
So lost till death shut-to the opened door,
So lost from chime to everlasting chime,
So cold and lost for ever evermore.

1854

I was watching a cooking show on Saturday and this lady was making carta musica, parchment bread. She sprinkled some flour on a board and then made a dam in the center of the flour to pour water into. She said that if you break the dam, you'll never marry. It was so great.

the maiden's lament

one day i went walking
down by the sea-shore,
the wind it did whistle,
and the waters did roar.

i heard a fair maiden
make a pitiful cry;
it sounded so lonesome,
swept off on high:

"i never will marry,
i'll be no man's wife;
i intend to live single
all the days of my life.

the shells in the ocean
will be my death-bed,
while the fish in deep waters
swim over my head."

she cast her fair body
in the waters so deep,
then she closed her pretty blue eyes,
forever to sleep.

i never will marry,
i'll be no man's wife;
i expect to live single
all the days of my life.

--------------------------

never shall i marry

never, never shall i marry,
never, never will i wed;
born to wander solitary,
wide my world and narrow my bed;
never, never, never shall i marry,
born to wander till i'm dead.

no burdens to bear,
no conscience to care,
no memories to mourn,
no turning, for i was
born to wander solitary,
wide my world and narrow my bed,
never, never, never shall i marry,
born to wander till i'm dead.

hey dudes, do you want to make this community a trinity effort, or should we try to recruit similar-minded, easily moldable young spinsters-to-be into the ranks? i was just about to post a command to those biddies in spinsterhouse, but i thought you might have other idears.
