Somebody mentioned the painting but for me it also called to mind a poem by one of the French Romantics (Baudelaire I think, but don't trust me on that)
I do like that moody nineteenth century stuff - its like a Leonard Cohen song, quite uplifting in that it has a hypnotic effect.

|very vivid imagery and atmosphere in this poem ... in "Hamlet" Ophelia is found with here dress spread open, leaving her looking like a flower ... i like how you took this theme into another level ... it has a dream-like quality to it ... i'm just a little confused why she waits for "a century later" to be never thawed ... overall, i like the affect of this poem ...|

|A beautiful write, Carrie, haunting and timeless with wonderful word relationships, like quickly and splashes, and the leaves covering the maiden while the river does the same, by dragging her down, flowing and floats, garland and icy beauty.
A masterful poem that leaves the reader wondering ... why. The only hint is the name Ophelia, which is all, and nothing. Unless, the blue lips and purple-rimmed eyes have a deeper meaning than the winter cold...
