D.G. Rossetti - Poem by Dorothy Parker

Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Buried all of his libretti,
Thought the matter over - then
Went and dug them up again.

    I didn't know that! Rossetti and Siddall seemed to have had a strange and romantic life... Too bad about the Laudanum... (Report) Reply

    Dante Gabriel Rossetti was interesting because he burried a lot of his poems with the body of a woman he loved. However, he soon had her dug up because he decided he wanted the poems back. That's what Dorothy is saying. (Report) Reply
