Verses 5 and 6 "The Lady of Shalott"

I know I'm overloading on this project, but there is a reason. On Friday 13th April my friend Magaly is asking us to tell what literary stereotype annoys us the most. I am using this poem to illustrate the point I want to make next week, but with 19 verses it would be a bit much for one post lol :D So please stick with me, all will become clear :D The background for these 2 images are the tapestry being worked on and the mirror.
"There she weaves by night and day
a magic web with colours gay.
She has heard a whisper say,
A curse is on her if she stay
To look down to Camelot.
She knows not what the curse may be,
and so she weaveth steadily,
And little other care hath she
The Lady of Shalott.

And moving through the mirror clear
That hangs before her all the year,
Shadows of the world appear.
There she sees the highway near,
Winding down to Camelot.
There the river eddy whirls,
And there the surly village churls,
And the red cloaks of the market girls
Pass onward from Shalott."

With these 2 images I wanted to show a comparison between old and young :D
Enjoy :D XXX
