This poem is so beautifully expressed, full of feeling and desire for learning and exploring the world. The poem is obviously composed to defy the restrictions of the society towards women in that era. And indeed, Edith herself was one of those rebellious ones. She travelled Europe and Balkan and visited many places, which was unusual for a woman of her times. I love the way Edith writes!
How devine is this? i love it so so much, saved to favourites i love how she dreams to lay free within adoring leaves but is obviously sick and tired of the restrictive shallowness of fashions society and all things that hold back her free spirit... a real yay! moment for me, how we all perform the expected dance and say the expected say ever dreaming of just once doing as one pleases ....
