  6. She Sat and Sang-Christina Rossetti • She sat and sang alwayBy the green margin of a stream,Watching the fishes leap and playBeneath the glad sunbeam.I sat and wept alwayBeneath the moon's most shadowy beam,Watching the blossoms of the MayWeep leaves into the stream.I wept for memory;She sang for hope that is so fair: My tears were swallowed by the sea;Her songs died on the air.

  7. Christina Rossetti’s Best Attributes • Imagery • Endings • Philosophical view on death • Contrast- half joyous, half depressing • Rhyming and rhythm
