Famous quotes containing the word rossetti:

    The city mouse lives in a house;—
    The garden mouse lives in a bower,
    —Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    The irresponsive silence of the land,
    The irresponsive sounding of the sea,
    Speak both one message of one sense to me:—
    ‘Aloof, aloof, we stand aloof,
    —Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    O love, my love! if I no more should see
    Thyself, nor on the earth the shadow of thee,
    Nor image of thine eyes in any spring,—
    How then should sound upon Life’s darkening slope
    The ground-whirl of the perished leaves of Hope,
    The wind of Death’s imperishable wing?
    —Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882)
