Bride Song by Christina Rossetti

Too late for love, too late for joy,

Too late, too late!

You loitered on the road too long,

You trifled at the gate

The enchanted dove upon her branch

Died without a mate;

The enchanted princess in her tower

Slept, died, behind the grate;

Her heart was starving

All this while you made her wait.

Absolutely love this poem. Rossetti’s poem Goblin Market is also amazing and definitely worth reading
