A Quote by Christina Georgina Rossetti on beauty, earth, health, life, worth, and youth

The Bourne Underneath the growing grass, Underneath the living flowers, Deeper than the sound of showers: There we shall not count the hours By the shadows as they pass. Youth and health will be but vain, Beauty reckoned of no worth: There a very little girth Can hold round what once the earth Seemed too narrow to contain.

Christina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)
