Twist Me A Crown of Wind-Flowers

"Twist me a crown of wind-flowers;
that I may fly away 

To hear the singers at their song,
And players at their play.

Put on your crown of wind-flower:
But wither would you go?

Beyond the surging of the sea
and the storms that blow.

Alas! Your crown of wind-flowers
Can never make you fly: 

I twist them in a crown to-day,
And to-night they die."

- Twist Me a Crown
Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-94)
