  • Hi again,

    It does not mean 'The ripple of girls' it means the ripples of laughter of the girls.

    You could substitute 'peals of laughter' or just simply 'the girls' giggles'

    It is my experience of life that girls appear quite quickly anywhere!!!
    One last question sir,
    The ripple of the water on the side,
    The ripple of girls' laughter at the stern,
    in these lines ripple of girls suggest dimples and I am astonished how girls came up in the poem so suddenly :s
    Hello Snow White,

    As I said this poem is open to different interpretations. If you go to this web site you will find a necklace with a heated opal stone as you will see it is a marbled blue colour.

    Maybe the phrase 'through the air' suggests that the heated opal acted like a paint brush and painted the sky in its own colours.
    It is true that there is also a stone callled a fire opal which is red maybe 'burned' refers to fire opal but that is not what it says. We don't know, only Oscar Wilde knows.
    Remember things can be white hot as well as red hot.

    In the line it is written the sky burned like a heated opal through the air. I am unable to figure what these last words suggests through the air and sky is burned so it doesn't mean it is blue. I am confused here.
