New Poem Explores Elizabeth Siddal as Ophelia

The tale of Lizzie Siddal posing as Ophelia in the famous Millais painting is legendary.  I wanted to share with you all a beautiful poem that is inspired by Lizzie’s experience posing for the painting.  It is a lovely poem, written by Carla Martin-Wood, aka “Angel” at The Well-Read Head (which I will be adding to my blogroll).  Link to the poem, link to the main page of her site.
