Christina Georgina Rossetti (Кристина Джорджина Россетти)


* * *


How many seconds in a minute?
Sixty, and no more in it.
How many minutes in an hour?
Sixty for sun and shower.
How many hours in a day?
Twenty-four for work and play.
How many days in a week?
Seven both to hear and speak.
How many weeks in a month?
Four, as the swift moon runneth.
How many months in a year?
Twelve the almanack makes clear.
How many years in an age?
One hundred says the sage.
How many ages in time?
No one knows the rhyme. 



Christina Georgina Rossetti's other poems:
  1. Lady Maggie
  2. Repining
  3. The Convent Threshold
  4. I Caught a Little Ladybird
  5. Amen
