PAINTED LADY, by                    
First Line: You flashed across my vision

Subject(s): Paintings & Painters

You flashed across my vision
Like a gay butterfly,
Whose only thought was pleasure,
Whose bright wings swept the sky.

And I, whose fond devotion
Through life you never missed,
Followed until the wings of death
Your flashing pinions kissed;

Until on your sleeping eyelids
The Heavenly Vision dawned.
Dear Painted Lady I loved you
Until death -- and beyond.
