Christina Rossetti

Christina Rossetti (1810-1894) is of Italian origin. She started writing poetry from an early age. A religious woman at heart, she remained single throughout her life. Goblin Market and Other Poems (1862) contains the pure lyric, narrative fable, ballad and devotional poetry. Her potery is filled with both sensuous details and with religious severity.

This poem, also published under the title “Song” elsewhere, tells the dear one not to be sentimental and sing sad songs for her When she is dead. Tile first stanza deals with the world of the living and the second with the poet’s experience in the grave.
