tragedy to come by littleblueraccoon tragedy to come by littleblueraccoon
"I thought about the future uneasily.
The shadows cannot see
the gleam of eyes.
I should have welcomed this first impression,
but I still shrank back.
Like the great hunter,
he stood as if waiting for a storm wind
to cover my face."

The book is Beauty by Robin McKinley, yet again. ^^

this design is a little easier to work with but it's harder to make a poem this way and for the love of pete could i possibly be any messier because i honestly don't think so

I also resubmitted this piece because for some reason it wouldn't allow me to access the deviation page. I don't know why. I just took it down and posted it back up so I could see it again.

It's a lovely design~    It doesn't look messy, I like it the way it is. ^_^ 

 I can see how it would make it harder to work with though, best of luck with that.

Ooh, that's good to know. I think my Sharpie was running out of ink at the time, haha. 

Thank you very much! :heart:

This is... too amazing to describe with words. Sad, to destroy a book, and yet it I am glad you find these poems and share them with is. Fortunately mass printing has allowed this destructive form of art. You have stunned me yet again.

I really appreciate that! I had my misgivings at first about writing in the book, but I think it's worth it in the end. Thank you so much! :tighthug:
