From The Antique - Christina Rossetti
Christina Georgina Rossetti (5 December 1830 – 29 December 1894) was an English poet who
wrote a variety of romantic, devotional, and children's poems. She is famous for writing
Goblin Market and Remember, and the words of the Christmas carol In the Bleak Midwinter.
The wind shall lull us yet,
The flowers shall spring above us:
And those who hate forget,
And those forgot who love us.
The pulse of hope shall cease,
Of joy and of regretting:
We twain shall sleep in peace,
Forgotten and forgetting.
For us no sun shall rise,
Nor wind rejoice, nor river,
Where we with fast-closed eyes
Shall sleep and sleep for ever.
