When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
A deeply moving poem so beautifully crafted and expressed.
" When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me; "
I share the same sentiments with you!
I watched the Soap Opera " Dark Shadows" back in the 60's in 1969 they did a soundtrack Album " Dark Shadows" with when I am Dead recited by Jonathan Frid a.k.a. Barnabas Collins really moving
wow! it a much heart touching and wonderful poetry.
''I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain; ''
I have a vision to write like this, only if god would bless me enough to.m
The poet cares for those she left
Telling them to move on with life
But we who are left here do not forget..we always remember happy memories
We may not see them anymore.. but what they did and what they made us feel will always be remembered.
thank you mam you almost solve my half problem by making me understand about what the poem is..and i need little more help from you that you should tell me on what aspects the poem is written..this is my email firstname.lastname@example.org
Its well worded, beautiflly expressed the realities of death and life.Christina is ever going to live in the hearts of those who
understands the real meaning of the poem.
This is one of my favorite poems from Ms. Rossetti and since high school days, have memorized it and learned it by heart. Eloquence of emotions in prefect rhyme and rhythm.
Again, great rhythm. This poem makes me feel like crying- it's a sad poem, yet so full of hope... one of my favourites of Christina's.
