She Fled the Garden For the Tower

 "I fled the garden for the tower,
 ...and I had been hiding behind these stones.
Thought I'd be well enough alone"

by PJ Lynch
"Then you came nearer,
You held the mirror,
I saw myself there in your eyes"

I have quoted this song before, but really, it's one of my favorites and reminds me of the Lady of Shalott in her tower. There are many meanings to the song, but the beautiful words fit her story and fit with these Shalott paintings, I just couldn't resist putting them together. Thought I had exhausted all of the art for Shalott, but I just keep finding more, thankfully.
