"My heart is like a singing bird"
"Whose nest is a watered shoot;"
"My heart is like an apple-tree"
"Whose boughs are bent with thickest fruit."
"--From A Birthday"
From the sensuous, deliciously scary, and popular "Goblin Market" to the delicate and musical "Sing-Song," Christina Rossetti's verses feature earthy, almost tactile images. As the sole woman among the Pre-Raphaelites, her work has a unique feminine perspective. Among the selections by Jan Marsh, author of an acclaimed biography of Christina and her brother, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, are "At Home," "Confluents," "Maude Clare," and "Songs for Strangers and Pilgrims."
