"The Picture of Dorian Gray"

The Picture of Dorian Gray

“There would be a day
when his face would be wrinkled and wizen,
his eyes dim and colourless,
the grace of his figure broken and deformed.
The scarlet would pass away from his lips
and the gold steal from his hair.
The life that was to make his soul
would mar his body.
He would become dreadful,
hideous,
and uncouth.”
— Oscar Wilde
