She laid her snow-white hand

league01

I'm not sure why, but after staring at Fleur's new skin for ~silentsparrow~ (the China L'Oiseau) this poem came to mind:

Down by the sally gardens my love and I did meet;
She passed the sally gardens with little snow-white feet.
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree;
But I being young and foolish with her did not agree.

In a field by the river my love and I did stand,
And on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow-white hand.
She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs;
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.
-- Yeats


Perhaps the delicate tracery of tears around the eyes, or the china-white skin...
