Poems by Christina G. Rossetti

«·A BIRD SONG. · AMOR MUNDI.·»

A SMILE AND A SIGH.

A smile because the nights are short!
  And every morning brings such pleasure
Of sweet love making, harmless sport
  Love that makes and finds its treasure;
  Love, treasure without measure.

A sigh because the days are long!
  Long, long these days that pass in sighing,
A burden saddens every song
  While time lags which should be flying,
  We live who would be dying.
