Edna St. Vincent Millay - Prayer To Persephone

Be to her, Persephone,
All the things I might not be:
Take her head upon your knee.
She that was so proud and wild,
Flippant, arrogant and free,
She that had no need of me,
Is a little lonely child
Lost in Hell,—Persephone,
Take her head upon your knee:
Say to her, "My dear, my dear,
It is not so dreadful here."

aAhjXp It as not that I want to duplicate your web-site, but I really like the design and style. Could you tell me which design are you using? Or was it tailor made?
