Ophelia

There, on the pendent boughs...


her crownet weeds clambering to hang...


an envious sliver broke...


when down her weedy trophies
and herself...


fell in the weeping brook.


Her clothes spread wide...


and mermaid-like,
awhile they bore her up...


which time she chanted
snatches of old tunes...


as one incapable of her own distress...


or like a creature native
and indued unto that element.


But long it could not be...


but that her garments,
heavy with their drink...


pulled the poor wretch
from her melodious lay...


to muddy death.


Alas! Then she is drowned?


Drowned.


Methought it was very sweet

I never really thinked of my name before, that it belonged to this girl, I haven´t read the book so why did she take suicide?
That´s the only thing I know about her =D

Hrm she is a character from the book Hamlet, by shakesphere.
She was caught between her father and brothers demands of her, and her love for Hamlet, who didnt wish to return the affection, because of his depression about things.
