Making Sense of Scents

Mrs Dai Bread Two

" Me, Mrs Dai Bread Two, gypsied to kill in a silky scarlet petticoat
 above my knees, dirty pretty knees,
 see my body through my petticoat 
brown as a berry, high-heel shoes with one heel missing, 
tortoiseshell comb in my bright black slinky
 hair, nothing else at all but a dab of scent,
 lolling gaudy at the doorway, tell your fortune in the tea-leaves, 
scowling at the sunshine, lighting up my pipe."

Dylan Thomas "Under Milk Wood"

A truly beautiful adventure of a book...and who wouldn't want to meet Mrs Dai Bread Two and sample her scent?
 (except of course for the pipe- smoke!)

A great depiction by Hayley of this colourful character
