goblynnmarket: It’s not very complicated...it’s a bobs burgers joke and a Christina Rossetti poem. What’s not to get?

RichardJFrith: Happy Christina Rossetti day (even if not quite a ‘feast day’). I’ve never come across the book that this collect is from, but I quite like it. CGR was self-effacing to a fault, and would have been astonished to know that one day she would be remembered in the Church’s calendar.

BroMikey: So forward our goings. As the dove, so launch us heavenwards. As water, so purify our spirits. As a cloud, so abate our temptations. As dew, so revive our languor. As fire, so purge our dross (Christina Rossetti)

opentablelgbt: TODAY (27th April) the Church of England honours the memory of Christina Rosetti, most famous for writing the lyrics to the Christmas carol 'In The Bleak Midwinter'. She also wrote verse about love between women:

Mind_Friends: My prayer-poem for Tuesday 27 April 2021 Commemoration of Christina Rossetti, Poet, 1894 Faith flourishing through dark...

TheLayArtiste: O God, whom heaven cannot hold, you inspired Christina Rossetti to express the mystery of the Incarnation through poems: Help us to follow her example in giving our hearts to Christ, who is love and who is alive and reigns with you & the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting

zozietropes: I finally understand Christina Rossetti’s “Goblin Market.” Tonight, I stood in my backyard, giddy at the prospect of leaving my house for the first time in a year— I smelled French fries and honeysuckle. These are the goblin fruits; this is the song; this is how they get me.

sarakhiser: Reading some Christina Rossetti today and reminded why she is the ultimate goth when she repeatedly links not just winter, but *summer* to death. Yas girl, we hate that unyielding light and endless boring green. Summer? Who needs it

sarakhiser: I’m a Christina Rossetti goth is what I’m saying

chrisjbrice: Today we give thanks for Christina Rossetti: her life, Faith, poetry, & Hymns including: “In the Bleak Midwinter” & “None Other Lamb”: Lord, Thou art life, though I be dead, Love’s fire Thou art, however cold I be: Nor heaven have I, nor place to lay my head, Nor Home, but Thee.”

StMarysKemptown: In honour of Christina Rossetti: My life is like a broken bowl, A broken bowl that cannot hold One drop of water for my soul Or cordial in the searching cold; Cast in the fire the perish'd thing; Melt and remould it, till it be A royal cup for Him, my King: O Jesus, drink of me.

Poem of the day

Ernest Dowson Poem
Vain Hope
 by Ernest Dowson

Sometimes, to solace my sad heart, I say,
Though late it be, though lily-time be past,
Though all the summer skies be overcast,
Haply I will go down to her, some day,
And cast my rests of life before her feet,
That she may have her will of me, being so sweet
And none gainsay!
