I wish I could remember that first day / Christina Rossetti

I wish I could remember that first day

Christina Rossetti


"Era gia l’ora che volge il desio. "– Dante

"Ricorro al tempo ch’io vi vidi prima." – Petrarca


I wish I could remember that first day,

First hour, first moment of your meeting me,

If bright or dim the season, it might be

Summer or Winter for aught I can say;
