Mournful Poem – Hear What The Mournful Linnets Say


Hear What The Mournful Linnets Say

~

by Christina Georgina Rossetti
Hear what the mournful linnets say:
‘We built our nest compact and warm,
But cruel boys came round our way
And took our summerhouse by storm.
‘They crushed the eggs so neatly laid;
So now we sit with drooping wing,
And watch the ruin they have made,
Too late to build, too sad to sing.’
