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
