DPF / Rossetti

For birthdays and for my birthday today, from poetryfoundation.org.

from A Birthday / by Christina Rossetti

Carve it in doves and pomegranates,
                  And peacocks with a hundred eyes;
Work it in gold and silver grapes,
                  In leaves and silver fleurs-de-lys
