The poetrygarden #2: Christina Rossetti

Hey you all! Today I’m posting two poems because I couldn’t find the time last week to post the first poem for this new feature on my blog. The second poem I chose is Dream Land by Christina Rossetti. I’m a huge fan of the Pre_raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti and a couple years ago I found out that his sister wrote poetry, out of curiosity I bought a book of her poems and fell in love with her writing. Hopefully you will love it too 🙂


The poem continues on the other page:

Rest, rest, for evermore

Upon a mossy shore;

Rest, rest at the heart’s core 

Till time shall cease:

Sleep that no pain shall wake,

Night that no morn shall break

Till joy shall overtake 

Her perfect peace.
