Quote of the week – Christina Georgina Rossetti number 2

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One for the spinsters today – “Somewhere or other” by Christina Georgina Rossetti:

Somewhere or other there must surely be
The face not seen, the voice not heard,
The heart that not yet – never yet, ah me!
Made answer to my word.

Somewhere or other, may be near or far;
Past land and sea, clean out of sight;
Beyond the wandering moon, beyond the star
That tracks her night by night.

Somewhere or other, may be far or near;
With just a wall, a hedge, between;
With just the last leaves of the dying year
Fallen on a turf grown green.

A highly imaginative approach to literature (and to life in general) can lead to imprecision.
