A New-Year’s Burden

Rating: 2.8

ALONG the grass sweet airs are blown
Our way this day in Spring.
Of all the songs that we have known
Now which one shall we sing?
Not that, my love, ah no!—
Not this, my love? why, so!—
Yet both were ours, but hours will come and go.
The grove is all a pale frail mist,
The new year sucks the sun.
Of all the kisses that we kissed

Now which shall be the one?

Not birth, my love, no, no, — Not death, my love, no, no, — The love once ours, but ours long hours ago. A profound poem from a great poet Dante

I love to read english poems, there is oft an understatement and so wisely put. I do not dare to give this Classic Mighty Poem a well deserved TEN, but it´s all in this game, a post mortem well deserved 10. The late Mr.Rossetti is a very gifted poet, IF I may say. Sheer poetry I have enjoyed fully and I love his refined chic cynism. CONGRATS for this Classic of the Day, For Mr. Rossetti´s family to know. Such a grateful feel having read a poem from a gifted Classic Poet.

As if it was a lonely place this grove; after love lost in between, for it lay between the meadows and the high-road and it became a New-year's burden.......very touching indeed and beautifully scripted......thanks for sharing
