O = Ophelia

Ophelia is Greek, meaning HELP.

From Hamlet: 

Ophelia says: There's rosemary, that's for remembrance. Pray you, love, remember. And there is pansies, that's for thoughts.


There's fennel for you, and columbines. There's rue for you, and here's some for me. We may call it herb of grace o' Sundays...

My high school English teacher (who famously told Stephen King he'd never make a living as a writer) had a picture of the drowned Ophelia in her classroom.

Really enjoyed this post about Ophelia.

Thank you for sharing and good luck with the remainder of the challenge.

I like that song but the Lumineers. I think it's relatively new.
