For more than a thousand years sad Ophelia
Has passed, a white phantom, down the long black river.
For more than a thousand years her sweet madness
Has murmured its ballad to the evening breeze.

It was the voice of mad seas, the great roar,
That shattered your child’s heart, too human and too soft ;
It was a handsome pale knight, a poor madman
Who one April morning sate mute at your knees !

Arthur Rimbaud | Ophelia

Ophelia portrayals | by Nicole Kidman, Mignon Nevada, Alexandre Cabanel,  John Everett Millais
