Christina Rossetti
Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I:
But when the trees bow down their heads
The wind is passing by.
Rossetti quotes
Sleeping at last, the trouble and tumult over,
Sleeping at last, the struggle and horror past,
Cold and white, out of sight of friend and of lover,
Sleeping at last.
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land.

Rossetti Christina quotes
When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.
Rossetti Christina
All earth’s full rivers can not fill
The sea that drinking thirsteth still.
Christina Rossetti quotes
In the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter
Long ago.
Christina Rossetti
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
Rossetti Christina quotes
Oh roses for the flush of youth,
And laurel for the perfect prime;
But pluck an ivy branch for me
Grown old before my time.
Hope is like a harebell, trembling from its birth,
Love is like a rose, the joy of all the earth,
Faith is like a lily, lifted high and white,
Love is like a lovely rose, the world’s delight.
Harebells and sweet lilies show a thornless growth,
But the rose with all its thorns excels them both.
Rossetti Christina
Does the road wind up-hill all the way?
Yes, to the very end.
Will the day's journey take the whole long day?
From morn to night, my friend.
Christina Rossetti
Then I have an ivory chair high to sit upon,
Almost like my father's chair, which is an ivory throne;
There I sit uplift and upright, there I sit alone.

Christina Rossetti quotes
The birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.
Christina Rossetti
One day in the country
Is worth a month in town.
Rossetti quotes
Silence more musical than any song.
Rossetti Christina
My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a water'd shoot;
My heart is like an apple-tree
Whose boughs are bent with thick-set fruit.
