Of women in the sadness of despair.

Fluttered by a wind.

Her locks streamed like the torch
Borne by a racer at full speed,
Or like the mane of horses in their flight
Or like an angel when she stems the light
Straight towards the sun,
Or like a caged thing freed,
Or like a flying flag when armies run.
            —Christina Georgina Rossetti

  Stream like a comet’s flashing hair.
            —Percy Bysshe Shelley

  Stream, like a sunset.
