Frome green downy hair

The river has a fat, soft face for the smack of oars, a neck with many wrinkles, a blue skin with green downy hair. Between its arms, pressed to its heart, it holds the little Island shaped like a chrysalis. The meadow in its green gown is asleep, its head in the hollow of its shoulder and neck.

Alfred Jarry, from ‘Clinamen’, Exploits and Opinions of Doctor Faustroll, Pataphysician
