Chinese Fan...

"Arushi Ahuja"
She took away what she thought was hers,
The delicate Chinese silken fan,
Sweet Summer, 1912, John William Waterhouse 
Of fuchsia and handcrafted work,
To hide her perfect mocha tan!

Under a fountain in a garden she lay,
The prize of many a hardened days
beside her, thinking of her love,
the furious pink roses above!

  4. Lovely and sedate.
    I have a very pale complexion. I wouldn't dare leave my bosom revealed to the sun, or I'd end up with a burned boobie!
    My creation is here.
