WriterLouisa: On my Louise Marley FB page, every Advent season I post classical music--motet, carol, solo song--that I love. Even if Christmas isn't your thing, you might enjoy them. Here's today's, the Harold Darke setting of the exquisite Christina Rossetti poem:

gherkinrowsell: …Harold Darke, was first a poem by Christina Rossetti originally titled “A Christmas Carol”.

bethfelkerjones: Angels and archangels may have gathered there, Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air; But His mother only, in her maiden bliss, Worshipped the beloved with a kiss. --Christina Rossetti

SFFAudio: WHAT IS PINK by Christina Rossetti

aquotebot: “Kneel, wrestle, knock, do violence, pray; Today is short, tomorrow nigh: Why will you die? why will you die?” –Christina Rossetti

MalmesburySch: Year 8 spent ‘Malmesbury Reads’ day listening and responding to the Christina Rossetti poem, ‘Goblin Market’. The resulting display shows an imaginative rogues gallery of grizzly goblins tempting the two sisters with their delicious fruit.

bethfelkerjones: Enough for Him, whom cherubim, worship night and day, Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay; Enough for Him, whom angels fall before, The ox and ass and camel which adore. --Christina Rossetti (interesting how we don't sing the BEST VERSE)

MusicOfLee: Christina Rossetti's "Remember" is I think one of the most beautiful poems, especially regarding mourning and grief. I have put off setting it for years because I wasn't sure I could do it justice, but I'm finally making an attempt now.

rottenmarigolds: 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 Rossetti ”When I am dead, my dearest"

ScozzariFrank: Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished? Yes, work never begun. —Christina Rossetti—

0liviaHouseman: Today I learned that Playboy released a ‘Goblin Market’ themed issue in the 70s. Honestly, I’m not sure whether Christina Rossetti would love or despise this information.

0liviaHouseman: “Golden head by golden head, Like two pigeons in one nest Folded in each other’s wings, They lay down in their curtain’d bed: …Cheek to cheek and breast to breast Lock’d together in one nest.” - Christina Rossetti

bethfelkerjones: In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, long ago. --Christina Rossetti

zinghope: In the bleak midwinter Christina Rossetti What can I give Him, poor as I am? If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb; If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part; Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.

Newdawn0808: Yet come to me in dreams, that I may live My very life again tho’ cold in death: Come back to me in dreams, that I may give Pulse for pulse, breath for breath: Speak low, lean low, As long ago, my love, how long ago. Echo, Christina Rossetti

ShalnevaE: DG Rossetti had no substance, but was an ace stylist. His sister had neither substance nor style. M Shelley wrote one inventive novel, but comes nowhere near the poet of Ozymandias. Only in a lurid feminist fantasy Christina Rossetti & Mary Shelley can "challenge the male canon."

Emily Dickinson Poem
Drowning is not so pitiful
