She was earnest,
irreverent, and whimsical.
And believed in the Oxford Comma.
"I came upon a cache of old photos
And invitations to teenage parties
'Dress in white' one said with quotations
From someone's wife - a famous writer
In the 1920s
When you're young, you find inspiration
In anyone who's ever gone
And opened up a closing door
She said: 'We were never feeling bored'..."
~ Pet Shop Boys
"...she covered her face with powder and paint because she didn't need it and she refused to be bored chiefly because she wasn't boring. She was conscious that the things she did were the things she had always wanted to do."
~ Zelda Fitzgerald
"Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful and so are you
Dear Prudence, won't you come out and play?"
~ The Beatles
