Christina Georgina Rossetti

Echo


Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright

    ...........so nicely written.....the echo of love still remains....even though death, has carried her beloved across the vast expanse of darkness... to paradise.... (Report) Reply

    So explosively Romantic and sad and somber at the same time. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful, yearning for love that has passed. I felt the emotion so deeply.Echo is an excellent title. The last verse is brilliant poetry.
    come back to me..... and the conclusion of breath to breath, pulse to pulse....
    A Lover's lost love of longing, even pleading, for the echo of their love shared so
    deeply.
    The best Love Poem I have read.

    I've always found a woman's love poem more powerful and poignant than that of a man; there's an honesty perhaps less restricted my the ego. (Report) Reply

    Awesome poetic talent. Really enjoyed every word in it. But I wish to add:
    Why always for the dreams we wish?
    Why don't in life we live like a fish?
    A great variety are in life's dish,
    Why not enjoy them with a swish?
    You have great depth. (Report) Reply
