You’ll catch your death…


Vintage gothic romance covers- a beautiful young woman- always running away from the house, castle, asylum… a light in the window.  Hair blowing, great outfit (maybe a nurse’s uniform complete with cap and cape)… what’s not to love?  It’s fun to think what her story might be just from the picture…


You ran off so suddenly,7278256314_4923881bfb

without your gloves or your hat.

Look, your hands are frozen.

Come back,

sit by the fire with me

and share a brandy for warmth.

I won’t bite.

The cliffs are icy,

and sea is fierce tonight.

I wouldn’t want anything to happen.
