When I am Dead, My Dearest
"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.
I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget."
~ Christina Rossetti
Always loved this poem...
hope everyone has a wonderful day *S*

Great art has the ability to put the viewer in a mood that is hard to shake. This one does just that!

a wonderful bond between the poem and the image. still I believe we are never dead.

Well done indeed ... excellent image composition. The blue coloration of the image blends with the sentiment of the poem creating an insinuating charge greater than its constituent parts. I'll repeat myself. Well done indeed, Ms. Sun!

beautiful image and poetry from the past by Christina who lived to age 64. Christina remembered again now by all those who see your art.
