Christina Rossetti's Poetry

Til Tomorrow 
By Christina Rossetti 

Long have I longed, till I am tired
Of longing and desire; 
Farewell my points in vain desired,
My dying fire;
Farewell all things that die and fail and tire.

Springtime and youth and useless pleasure
And all my useless scheming, 
My hopes of unattainable treasure,
Dreams not worth dreaming,
Glow-worms that gleam but yield no warmth in gleaming,

Farewell all shows that fade in showing; 
My wish and joy stand over
Until tomorrow; Heaven is glowing
Thro' cloudy cover, 
Beyond all clouds loves me my Heavenly Lover.

Houston Heat

 So, I'm in Houston for the summer living with my grandparents. Here are a few pics of the Friendswood and Galveston area. I'm reading a huge book right now, so it might be a while before I blog about it...
