The Most Gorgeous Lady Blessington

The Wallace Collection
12 October

Within the house there lies a gallery
of red brocade and gilt; and here she sits,
happy in silk, as in her portrait.

Here she travels time and continent,
recalling friends and creditors, husbands
and lovers, paintings and poetry;

and here her life unfurls and floats away, 
thinner and sadder now, as might a leaf 
from some grand old oak tree.

The Most Gorgeous Lady Blessington, by Tangent Theatre
