The Coming of May

Figure descriptions
The spirit of a woman appears to a man in his drawing room. The woman is translucent: she wears a flowing dress, a floral crown, and floral garlands. She holds a bouquet of wild flowers out to the man. Butterflies float around her head. The man looks up toward the spirit, shocked. He sits in a chair and grips the armrests. He rests his foot on a second chair. Two books and a sheet of paper lie on the ground. The spirit is in front of a hearth, on which there is a small clock. Framed art hangs on the wall.
