Tears For Gerald - Poem by Douglas Scotney
'Tears make pity thrive, '
as I sought a name
'But what would Shakespeare have said? '
I read a play
(actually more than a few)
and out of The Winter's Tale,
by, ha! , Hermione,
came VAIN DEW.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Hermione pronounced Her-my-o-knee
II.i 109-110.'the want of which vain dew
Perchance shall dry your pities'
