Poem by Dante Gabriel Rossetti
UNCERTAIN-AGED Miss Thereabouts, Tough fossil of her teens, Has lifted up with saving hand The ruined Smithereens. Down the dark steps of debt that hand Sped like an angel's wing, Deep—dowered with gold, and for itself Brought back a golden ring. Ah lovely Lucy Lovandove, 10 That ring's a snake, and means Woe without end: therein lies crushed Thy heart—to smithereens.
