Ophelia is Drowning


Ophelia is drowning,
And she is not afraid,
She thinks death quite romantic
At 20 she is already an old maid.

Ophelia is drowning
In a view for all too see
In a unrequited suicide
For a love such as he.

Ophelia is drowning,
Her faded fingers hold a wedding bouquet,
And the water fills her lungs
She will never see her wedding day.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
