Between Affection and Affliction


How cruelty an affection is,
When friend becomes foe;
And bigot start to wish,
Our love ended in woe.

How cruelty an affection is,
When virtues become vices;
And lover separated from bliss,
A conspiracy arises with malignant prices.

How cruelty an affection is,
If it impel and laid sins;
How strong the malice aforethought kissed,
Love will eventually win.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
