The portrait fills each feature, making swell
The heart with hope: avoiding face and hair
Start out in living hues; astonished, “There!—
The picture lives!” your soul exults, when, lo!
You hold a blur; an undetermined glow
Discerns a daub.—“Restore?”—Ah, I have tried
Our best restorers, and it has defied.excerpt M.Cawein
Continuing the theme of dark images, this portrait is meant to intrigue the viewer…who is she?..
