Poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti

* * *

Boats sail on the rivers,
	And ships sail on the seas;
But clouds that sail across the sky
	Are prettier far than these.
There are bridgers on the rivers,
	As pretty as you please;
But the bow that bridges heaven,
	And overtops the trees,
And builds a road from earth to sky,
	Is prettier far than these.
