By Paul Verlaine
Translated by C. F. MacIntyre
Your soul is like a painter's landscape where
charming masks in shepherd mummeries
are playing lutes and dancing with an air
of being sad in their fantastic guise.
Even while they sing, all in a minor key,
of love triumphant and life's careless boon,
they seem in doubt of their felicity,
their song melts in the calm light of the moon,
the lovely melancholy light that sets
the little birds to dreaming in the tree
and among the statues makes the jets
of slender fountains sob with ecstasy.
Am still in a Total Eclipse sort of a mood. I blame this on psu_jedi getting me to see POA with her again yesterday (she MADE me, she FORCED me, she TWISTED MY ARM -- that's my story and I'm sticking to it) and on perkypaduan who is coming over this morning to watch some gay porn. Er, movies. Yeah. Coming over to watch movies before she heads off to the beach and my kids return early this afternoon.
Speaking of gay porn, I watched the deleted scenes from Maurice. Clive asking if he can get in bed with Maurice. The cut parts of the Scudder sex scene. Gnnnnh and thank god for directors/studios saving their clippings.
I am SO behind on everything from being sick and I can't even catch up right now...and I have drafts of the fifth, sixth AND seventh parts of Lupin/Snape calling to me and can't write fic. And my evil writing partner is trying to drive Snape insane. Speaking of whom, two quiz results that made me think of her: She's my best Friend, and after what she did to Sirius yesterday I suppose this was inevitable.
