Spring Quiet

 (Photo by Animalia)

“Here dwell in safety,
  Here dwell alone,
With a clear stream
  And a mossy stone.

“Here the sun shineth
  Most shadily;
Here is heard an echo
  Of the far sea,
  Though far off it be.”

~ Christina Rossetti
(excerpt from "Spring Quiet")

Interesting poem...

It makes me wonder what meaning the author was trying to convey, seems very open to interpretation. I'm thinking it has to do with what we desire in life.
