Poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti


* * *


Hear what the mournful linnets say:
СWe built our nest compact and warm,
But cruel boys came round our way
And took our summerhouse by storm.
СThey crushed the eggs so neatly laid;
So now we sit with drooping wing,
And watch the ruin they have made,
Too late to build, too sad to sing.Т
