She Sat And Sang ( Christina Rossetti )

She sat and sang alway

By the green margin of a stream,
Watching the fishes leap and play
Beneath the glad sunbeam.
 
I sat and wept alway
Beneath the moon's most shadowy beam,
Watching the blossoms of the May
Weep leaves into the stream.
 
I wept for memory;
She sang for hope that is so fair:
My tears were swallowed by the sea;
Her songs died in the air.
