Poems by Christina G. Rossetti

«·MONNA INNOMINATA. · DE PROFUNDIS.·»

“LUSCIOUS AND SORROWFUL.”

Beautiful, tender, wasting away for sorrow;
Thus to-day; and how shall it be with thee to-morrow?
    Beautiful, tender—what else?
        A hope tells.

Beautiful, tender, keeping the jubilee
In the land of home together, past death and sea;
    No more change or death, no more
        Salt sea-shore.
