Little Maid in Adelaide

REMEMBER me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

- Christina Rossetti

The copper plated leaf is going to Oz around the neck of one of my favourite people. The posy of flowers was for my best friend's little sister on her 18th birthday. The dress is China silk and used to belong to my grandma.
Today is for chicken soup and making crab apple jelly with my ma, and a belated birthday.
