"Next day the memories of these
Like leaves through which a bird
Still vibrated with Love's warm
Till I must make them all my own
And paint this picture.
So, 'twixt ease
Of talk and sweet long silences,
She stood among the plants in
At windows of a summer room,
To feign the shadow of the trees."
Dante Gabriel Rossetti, 1870
