Once, when I was a little girl, I decided to memorize all of Longfellow's Paul Revere's Ride. My grandma had given me her old Longfellow's Poem's book -- an ancient leather binding, inscribed to her in 1922, and to me in 1982. I was a serious little person, and spent a long time going over and over the lines -- a few of them haunt me still.
A phantom ship, each mast and spar
across the moon like a prison bar.
Sometimes in Second Life these lines pop up in my memory, especially if I'm in a particularly evocative build. The new Kurotsubaki furniture sim had me staring at the skyline and reciting those lines... perhaps because of the stark, Kansas-like windmills against the harsh brightness of the sky.
I'm in silver today, in a new perfectly-executed silver skins by Minajunk, a paper mask around my neck by Mijn Boa, and three new hair fair hairs by Draconic Kiss.
