Rossetti: Poems | Christina Rossetti
post image

“Time lengthening, in the lengthening seemeth long:
But ended Time will seem a little space,
A little while from morn to evensong,
A little while that ran a rapid pace;
A little while, when once Eternity
Denies proportion to the other‘s pace.”
-excerpt from “Time Lengthening” by Christina Rossetti (1830 - 1894). #poetry #christinarossetti #time

The title got cut off, but it‘s the same as the first line.

Graywacke Where do you find all these? Random, or do have some resource of only-magnificent-selected-poems 3mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke The website poetryfoundation.org is my main online resource. But I also have several anthologies that I read from. (edited) 3mo

Graywacke @Lcsmcat I‘m impressed. 👍 3mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke My mother had an English teacher who gave them an assignment to create a scrapbook of poetry, the only requirement for which was that they must love each poem they selected. She kept it and we used to pull it out and read them together. And I have a brother-in-law and a good friend who are published poets. It‘s just always been around. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
Graywacke @Lcsmcat what a great idea - the scrapbook. That‘s cool - your mother, bil, and friend and the rest. And special. I once had a neighbor who became Texas state poet laureate one year - he was my inspiration to get in touch poetry. He meant a lot to me, although we have now mostly lost contact. I have hundreds of his books he cast off when downsizing. 3mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke Cool! Is your friend published? You should share his work on here. 3mo
Graywacke @Lcsmcat yes. He has several books and a now dated selected work (tagged) 3mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke I‘ll have to look for his work. 3mo
Graywacke @Lcsmcat hmm. I‘ll have to send you some suggestions. Fascinating guy. Maybe try 3mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke Thanks! I‘ll look for them. (edited) 3mo
Graywacke His earlier stuff was years in the writing, decades actually, waiting till he thought he had enough prime stuff. There is a texan-southwest trend. Later he was more free flowing, I think. (The two I tagged are a little later). 3mo
