|Winter Work (1883-4) George Clausen|
|Brown Eyes (1891)|
My pressie suggestion today is this pretty bangle...
The poem is about the narrator's joy on the arrival of her love, that she is born on that day, that very splendid day, because it's the day she has him. Unlike many, if not most, of Rossetti's poems, the tone of the piece is so happy, so overwhelmed with utter bliss, just because the object of her love exists. I can think of no more romantic thing to give to the love of your life than a bracelet that has that sentiment written upon it.My heart is like a singing birdWhose nest is in a water'd shoot;My heart is like an apple-treeWhose boughs are bent with thickset fruit.
To buy the bangle, look here.
See you tomorrow!
