Sun Sinking through the Woods
Sun Sinking through Autumn Woods

From A Harvest

Is the day wearing toward the west? —
Far off cool shadows pass,
A visible refreshment
Across the sultry grass;
Far off low mists are mustering,
A broken shifting mass.
Still in the deepest knowledge
Some depth is left unknown;
Still in the merriest music lurks
A plaintive undertone:
Still with the closest friend some throb
Of life is felt alone.

By Christina Rossetti

  1. I know that Christina Rossetti is posted frequently on this blog, but I think this is the best selection of her work to date.

  2. ‘Tis here again. The onset, of the beauty, of the dying. Where did the summer go? This life really is but a moment.
