How totally cute!!!! Love this!
I had NO IDEA that was Christina Rossetti - but, then, I suppose that's why you posted it ;)Love the picture, tooJoanna
OMG - I had no idea that Christina Rossetti ever wrote anything that light and fun.
I was surprised by the Rossetti poem as well, but when I went looking around for more info on her, I came across a book called Sing-Song: A Nursery Rhyme Book. There's a recent reproduction with the original Victorian illustrations for sale, and I'm going to buy it. One reviewer said it is typically V. with some morbid ones, but still thought it worth buying.
I am changing how I post your much appreciated comments. Since I began the blog, I've waited to post them until I had the opportunity to respond. Sometimes that has taken a while, so I've decided to moderate them and post them as soon as possible, and then I'll respond when I get a chance. Please do come back because I will answer all your notes to me.Also, you may comment on any posts, no matter how old, and I will receive notice.
