Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882)
Proserpine
Oil on canvas, 1874
61 x 126.4 cm (24.02" x 4' 1.76")
Tate Gallery, London, United Kingdom

Afar away the light that brings cold cheer
Unto this wall, - one instant and no more
Admitted at my distant palace-door
Afar the flowers of Enna this drear
Dire fruit, which, tasted once, must thrall me here.
Afar those skies this Tartarean grey
That chills me: and afar how far away,
The nights that shall become the days that were.

Afar mine own self I seem, and wing
Strange ways in thought, and listenfor a sign:
And still some heart unto some soul doth pine,
O, Whose sounds mine inner sense in fain to bring,
Continually together murmuring) --
'Woe me for thee, unhappy Proserpine'.
-- D. G. Rossetti
