Twist Me a Crown
 
Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–94)
 
 
TWIST me a crown of wind-flowers;
  That I may fly away
To hear the singers at their song,
  And players at their play.
 
Put on your crown of wind-flower:        5
  But whither would you go?
Beyond the surging of the sea
  And the storms that blow.
 
Alas! your crown of wind-flowers
  Can never make you fly:        10
I twist them in a crown to-day,
  And to-night they die.
