Name: Gabriele Rossetti
Live: in England
Work as: a Professor in king’s college
The wind flapped loose, the wind was still,
Shaken out dead from tree and hill:
I had walked on at the wind's will, —
I sat now, for the wind was still.
Between my knees my forehead was, —
My lips, drawn in, said not Alas!
My hair was over in the grass,
My naked ears heard the day pass.
My eyes, wide open, had the run
Of some ten weeds to fix upon;
Among those few, out of the sun,
The woodspurge flowered, three cups in one.
From perfect grief there need not be
Wisdom or even memory:
One thing then learnt remains to me, —
The woodspurge has a cup of three.
flapped : moved
The woodspurge, is an European herb with greenish yellow flowers. It is a plant with milky latex and has a cup-like flower. As shown here ..
(1830 –1894) was born in England . She was a poet, who wrote a variety of romantic, devotional, and children's poems. She was the best known for her long poem Goblin Market, her love poem "Remember", and for her Christmas poem "In the Bleak Midwinter".
2-Gone far away into the silent land;
3-When you can no more hold me by the hand,
4-Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
5-Remember me when no more day by day
6-You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
7-Only remember me; you understand
8-It will be late to counsel then or pray.
9-Yet if you should forget me for a while
10-And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
11-For if the darkness and corruption leave
12-A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
13-Better by far you should forget and smile
14-Than that you should remember and be sad.
29 December 1894
1- advice; opinion or instruction given in directing the judgment or conduct of another.
2-Theology. one of the advisory declarations of Christ, considered by some Christians
as not universally binding but as given for aid in attaining moral perfection.
To feel grief or great sorrow.
the act of corrupting or state of being corrupt.
a mark, trace, or visible evidence of something that is no longer present or in existence
This poem implies immediately a loving, yet sad, request. How Rossetti resolves the conflict she presents in the poem reflects the way she handled similar dilemmas in her own life—emotionally and philosophically, always letting her devout Christian beliefs be the deciding factor.
1-Is imperfect love in Rossetti’s “Remember” is an idea based on the more obvious and often used theme of religion in her works.
2-Christina was so devoutly centered on her Christian faith and love of God, the love of a man must seem second-rate, at best.
3-She seems honestly to love him and begs him to remember her when she is dead; on the other hand, she appears a bit nonchalant in her willingness to tell him to forget her just the same.
