Christina Rossetti quotations

''One day in the country
Is worth a month in town.''

Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894)

'Spin and die,
To live again as butterfly.''
(The carterpillar)

''The city mouse lives in a house;
The garden mouse lives in a bower.
''The city mouse eats bread and cheese;
The garden mouse eats what he can ;
We will not grudge him seeds and stocks,
Poor little timid furry man.''
'' Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894), British poet. The City Mouse and the Garden Mouse

''And sometimes I remember days of old
When fellowship seemed not so far to seek,
And all the world and I seemed much less cold,
And at the rainbow's foot lay surely gold,
And hope felt strong, and life itself not weak.''
(The thread of life)

''You took my heart in your hand
With a friendly smile,
With a critical eye you scanned,
Then set it down,
And said: It is still unripe,
Better wait awhile;''
(Twice)

''Shall I find comfort, travel-sore and weak?
Of labour you shall find the sum.
Will there be beds for me and all who seek?
Yea, beds for all who come.

But is there for the night a resting-place?
A roof for when the slow, dark hours begin,''
(Uphill)
