Look ~ Christina Rosetti

Two doves upon the selfsame branch,
  Two lilies on a single stem,
Two butterflies upon one flower:—
  Oh happy they who look on them.

Who look upon them hand in hand
  Flushed in the rosy summer light;
Who look upon them hand in hand
  And never give a thought to night.

    • Thanks for the comment. Much appreciated. Chistina’s poem touched me as well. I think one gets the sense her words rose from some place deep within her heart. Have a great day. Ray

      • Thanks Ray! Yes I’m sure you are right … and oh how I enjoyed reading several of her poems spurred on by your post. I’m left with a beautiful calmness afterward.
