LiteraryVienna: „Better by far you should forget and smile than that you should remember and be sad.“ Christina Rossetti

bentalawira: An important and often-quoted literary figure, the English poet Christina Rossetti wrote some of the most voluptuous poet. Like Emily Dickinson, she lived in self-imposed isolation, writing of God and lost love with a sensuality and passion that seemed to emanate from the soul.

UnderAntares: Pulse for pulse, breath for breath: This poem of Christina Rossetti is achingly beautiful and sad.

ashleyonten: “We must not look at goblin men, We must not buy their fruits: Who knows upon what soil they fed Their hungry thirsty roots?” Christina Rossetti wrote this in 1859 and I find it more applicable than ever.

PeoplesPedagog1: Anyone care to suggest how to bring Christina Rossetti - not the physical poet - to life with the next batch of year 12??? Do I leave Goblin Market till last again or relent and share that good stuff early on?

XInannaX: An emerald is as green as grass, A ruby red as blood; A sapphire shines as blue as heaven; A flint lies in the mud. A diamond is a brillant stone, To catch the world's desire; An opal holds a fiery spark; But a flint holds fire. Christina Rossetti My mum liked this.
