Christina Rossetti, What are heavy?


Sing-Song XVIII

What are heavy? sea-sand and sorrow:
What are brief? to-day and to-morrow:
What are frail? Spring blossoms and youth:
What are deep? the ocean and truth.


Sing-Sang XVIII

Was ist schwer? Meeressand und Sorgen.
Was ist kurz? Das Heute und das Morgen.
Was ist zart? Frühe Blüte, junges Glück.
Was ist tief? Ozean und treuer Blick.
