Goblin Market, and other poems, by Christina Rossetti

Song

Two doves upon the selfsame branch,

    Two lilies on a single stem,

Two butterflies upon one flower:—

    Oh happy they who look on them.

Who look upon them hand in hand

    Flushed in the rosy summer light;

Who look upon them hand in hand

    And never give a thought to night.
