Jane Eyre


Speaking of Madwomen up there—
Moldering away in the closety Attic
I’ve always been fond of Jane Eyre

Of course there was that other—
Emily Bronte classic with Cathy &
Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights

Starring brooding Miss Oliver—
And withering Merle Oberon as
The doomed Yorkshire lovers

But Joan Fontaine doesn’t have—
A chance as the noble governess
In this bleak Gothic soap opera

Orson Welles as melancholy—
Morose Mr. Rochester hogs up the
Silver Screen as usually my dears
