Christina Georgina Rossetti (5 December 1830 – 29 December 1894)
Let’s read together: The Rainbow of Christina Georgina Rossetti
Boats sail on the rivers,
And ships sail on the seas;
But clouds that sail across the sky
Are prettier far than these.
There are bridges on the rivers,
As pretty as you please;
But the bow that bridges heaven,
And overtops the trees,
And builds a road from earth to sky,
Is prettier far than these.
