    Yet if you should forget me for a while
    And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
    For if the darkness and corruption leave

    Better by far you should forget and smile
    Than that you should remember and be sad.

    ‘Come buy, come buy,’
    With its iterated jingle
    Of sugar-bated words:

    That doth not rise nor set,

    And haply may forget.

    But when the trees bow down their heads, The wind is passing by.

    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.
    —Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
