Ie is all too aware of the dangers later she reminds her sister of how Jeanie wasted away after she ate their fruits and wore their flowers but Lizzie lingers She has no money so pays with a lock of her golden hair which in a mythical world is clearly not good But she tastes their fruit and is euphoric at the sensations she sucked until her lips were sore And new not was it night or day Lizzie gets home safely but of course she craves goblin fruit Next morning the first cock crowed his warning but the sisters go about their chores as normal At length slow evening came They went with pitchers to the reedy brook Lizzie most placid in her look Laura most like a leaping flame Laura listens for the come buy come buy call and is shocked to realise she can no longer hear it though her pure sister can Day after day night after night Laura ept watch in vain In sullen silence of exceeding pain She never caught again the goblin cryLike Jeanie Laura fades away She dwindled as the fair full moon does turn To swift decay and burn Her fire awayYet every day Lizzie is tormented by hearing the goblins cry She Longed to buy the fruit to comfort her Lizzie But feared to pay too dear Nevertheless eventually she takes a penny and decides to get what her sister craves Thus Lizzie has turned from tempted to temptressBut instead of taking her money the goblins assault her and Held her hands and sueezed their fruits Against her mouth to make her eat She resits but is covered in pulp and juice which she then urges her sister to take Eat me drink me love me sexual or eucharistic so Shaking with anguish fear and pain She Laura issed and issed her with a hungry mouthThis time the juice is like poison to her yet it is also purgative and restores her The power of the love of a pure sister is thus demonstrated and handed down to their own children CONTRASTSThere is a stark contrast in the revulsion the goblins themselves inspire and the irresistible appeal of their fruit like drugs and indeed Victorian attitudes to sex Of the goblins One tramped at a rat s pace One like a wombat prowled obtuse and furry and when they sense a victim their movements are hungry hobbling Flying running leaping Puffing And Blowing Chucking Clapping Crowing Clucking And blowing Chucking clapping crowing Clucking and If they fear she might leave without succumbing Grunting and snarling Cross grained uncivil Their Tones Waxed Lout Their Looks Were Evil waxed lout Their looks were evil their tails They trod and hustled her Tore her gown and soiled her stockingAnd ah the fruit Bloom down cheeked peaches Wild free born cranberries Pears red with basking Out in the sun Plums on their twigs Pluck them and suck them Pomegranates figs Who would not be tempted are you Laura or Lizzie Now this was an interesting poem and one that can be interpreted several ways Personally I took it as a suggestion that Victorian women should behave like ladies and.
