Ever see an old photograph, more specefically, a daguerreotype, and begin thinking about the people in the picture? Well I do, and here's the product of such, and a little more SRD-style Victorian romance.

A black and white,
A daguerreotype,
A sad and listless face.
Sweet and sublime,
Static in time,
A depression thus unveiled.
 
A husband and wife,
No longer in life,
Stare wistfully at the lens.
It was 1843,
By ‘44 the man would be,
A sad and sullen face.
 
But now in the frame
They shall remain,
And bask in immortality;
At least for a while,
With their quiet smiles,
And enjoy what life they have.
