La tierra muerta, como un ojo ciego,
Seguirá andando siempre sin sosiego,
Pero en la sombra, a tientas, solitaria,
Sin un canto, ni un ¡ay!, ni una plegaria.
A dead world like a blinded eye,
Restless forever moves through the sky,
But fumbling in shadow and all alone
Not a song nor a cry nor a prayer intones.
I was born the Queen’s daughter, resented by my father for not being the prince an heir that he wished for. By his whims, I’ve suffered through downfalls and brief flashes of grace, I saw him drive my mother to wither and die alone, I saw others rise and tragically fall. Now I am the queen, and the most unhappy woman on this sterile Earth.
Today I drove my inspiration from one of the darkest moments in the life of Mary I of England, first daughter of the infamous Henry VIII. After a psychological pregnancy ended her hopes of having a child and heir of her own, her beloved husband left her with the excuse of fighting Spanish wars.
Here she cries to the god she’s always loved and defended, in an effort to understand what her sins are. She wears the majestic “The Queen’s Daughter” gown, created by Silvan Moon designs exclusively for the October round of We ❤ RP. The head piece is included, and it’s available in different colors. It’s absolutely exquisite, wonderfully rigged, and ready for Maitreya, Slink, or standard SL bodies.
The gorgeous jewelry that my melancholy queen Mary wears is by Zuri Jewelry: one is a complete classic, the Czarina Jewels here in the Elite version (metal/gem/pearl changing menu), and a new release: the Filigree Ring. It’s not fitted or rigged, but it’s already located on the ring finger, for Bento hand users.
The head I’m wearing today is the new Kiana Bento head by Genesis Lab, a most generous and adorable group gift. I added some wrinkles (Omega appliers by Izzie’s), to better illustrate Queen Mary in the situation I was portraying, lonely, depressed and in pain, thinking that god was punishing her for tolerating “heretics” in her realm.
Sola, con sus criaturas preferidas
En el seno cansadas y dormidas.
(Madre que marcha aún con el veneno
de los hijos ya muertos en el seno.)
Alone, with the creatures it preferred,
In its breast worn out, sleep interred.
(A mother moving on with venom pressed
from her children, dead now, in her breast.)
