Storyboard Text

  • Who told my mother of my shame, Who told my father of my dear? Oh who but Maude, my sister Maude, Who lurked to spy and peer.
  • Cold he lies, as cold as stone, With his clotted curls about his face: The comeliest corpse in all the world And worthy of a queen's embrace.
  • You might have spared his soul, sister, Have spared my soul, your own soul too: Though I had not been born at all, He'd never have looked at you.
  • My father may sleep in Paradise, My mother at Heaven-gate: But sister Maude shall get no sleep Either early or late.
  • My father may wear a golden gown, My mother a crown may win; If my dear and I knocked at Heaven-gate Perhaps they'd let us in:
  • But sister Maude, oh sister Maude, Bide you with death and sin. ~Christina Georgina Rossetti: Sister Maude
