Literary Birthday - 5 December - Christina Rossetti

Christina Rossetti was born 5 December 1830, and died 29 December 1894

Five Quotes

  1. Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished? Yes, work never begun.
  2. For there is no friend like a sister In calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, To fetch one if one goes astray, To lift one if one totters down, To strengthen whilst one stands.
  3. Spring bursts today, For love is risen and all earth's at play.
  4. Who has seen the wind? Neither you nor I: But when the trees bow down their head, The wind is passing by.
  5. Remember me when I am gone away, gone far away into the silent land.

Rossetti was an English poet who wrote a variety of romantic, devotional, and children’s poems. She is perhaps best known for the words of the Christmas carol In the Bleak Midwinter.
