CHAPTER 28: Child of the Pure Unclouded Brow

Child of the pure unclouded brow
And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet, and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.

I have not seen thy sunny face,
Nor heard thy silver laughter;
No thought of me shall find a place
In thy young life's hereafter -
Enough that now thou wilt not fail
To listen to my fairy-tale.

Lovely card! The warm colors suit this image so well, and you have achieved great depth with your shading! The DP is perfect, as are the trims, and the touch of the one white 3D butterfly is the perfect finishing touch!
