or this verse that is used in greeting cards:
Dimmest and brightest month am I;This is taken from a long work, "The Months: A Pageant," which is written to be performed by girls and boys who personify the months and "Robin Redbreasts; Lambs and Sheep; Nightingale and Nestlings. Various Flowers, Fruits, etc."
My short days end, my lengthening days begin;
What matters more or less sun in the sky,
When all is sun within?
These two Rossetti poems are a great opening to the upcoming holiday week. Enjoy, and may you shine brightly!
