I Met an Invalid and Fell for His Art…

There isn’t as much fan art for Delirium as there is for some other fandoms, but we totally love this graphic by Erudite-in-Dauntless, featuring a line from the infamous “A Child’s Walk Home” poem from the first book!

A Child's Walk Home Lauren Oliver Delirium
By Erudite-in-Dauntless

Mama, Mama, help me get home
I’m out in the woods, I am out on my own.
I found me a werewolf, a nasty old mutt
It showed me its teeth and went straight for my gut.

Mama, Mama, help me get home
I’m out in the woods, I am out on my own.
I was stopped by a vampire, a rotting old wreck
It showed me its teeth and went straight for my neck.

Mama, Mama, put me to bed
I won’t make it home, I’m already half-dead.
I met an Invalid, and fell for his art
He showed me his smile, and went straight for my heart.
