Dreaming: Curtains with Poetry

I've been searching for curtains for the dining room for awhile now. I'd love for them to have handwritten text, but I'm having a hard time finding what's in my head. Maybe that's why I was drawn in by Paprika's curtains last week.
Curtains with Text
What do you think of curtains with poetry or love letters?
With Paprika's curtains, I like the color contrast of the words with the main fabric. I also like the spacing of the text, enough that the text is a focal point. They're similar to what I've been dreaming of, although I was hoping to find a set with the curtain in orange, purple, or blue and the text in white.
So far, I've found sheers in neutrals. I'm wondering if I can hang the neutral sheers over a color curtain or if the text would get lost. What do you think?
