Famous quotes containing the word rossetti:

    So unrecorded did it slip away,
    So blind was I to see and to foresee,
    So dull to mark the budding of my tree
    That would not blossom yet for many a May.
    If only I could recollect it, such
    A day of days! I let it come and go
    As traceless as a thaw of bygone snow;
    It seemed to mean so little, meant so much;
    If only now I could recall that touch,
    First touch of hand in hand—Did one but know!
    —Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    Does the road wind uphill all the way?
    Yes, to the very end.
    Will the day’s journey take the whole long day?
    From morn to night, my friend.

    But is there for the night a resting-place?
    A roof for when the slow, dark hours begin,
    —Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    Hush’d in and curtain’d with a blessed dearth
    Of all that irk’d her from the hour of birth;
    With stillness that is almost Paradise.
    Darkness more clear than noonday holdeth her,
    —Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
