Texas: A Wilde Epitaph
Texas Guinan used lines from an Oscar Wilde poem for her epitaph.
And down the long and silent street,
The dawn, with silver-sandaled feet,
Crept like a frightened girl.
[- - excerpt from The Harlot's House by Oscar Wilde]
Belatedly, in honor of the November 30th death of the author:
Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde [16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900]
