Remember - Christina Rossetti

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember me, do not grieve;
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

Ena mojih najljubših pesmi. Na vsake toliko jo spet preberem. Christina in Dante Rossetti se pojavita tudi v drugem možnem koncu Fowlesovega romana Ženska francoskega poročnika, ta navezava mi je bila res zanimiva.

Una tra le mie poesie preferite che ogni tanto vado a rileggere. Christina e Dante Rossetti compaiono anche nel secondo finale possibile del romanzo La donna del tenente francese di Fowles, collegamento che ho trovato veramente interessante.
