The Yellow Stocking


The first thing we needed to change was the title of the poem - from 'The Yellow Sock' (which sounds unintentially amusiing - and indubitably masculine) to the erotically-charged, very feminine, 'The Yellow Stocking'.

We really appreciated the melancholic longing and tenderness of this poem and it was a real pleasure to be able to translate it into English.
