Michael Scott’s Wooing

Dante Gabriel Rossetti 1828 (London) – 1882 (Birchington-on-Sea)



ROSE-SHEATHED beside the rosebud tongue
Lurks the young adder's tooth;
Milk-mild from new-born hemlock-bluth
The earliest drops are wrung:
And sweet the flower of his first youth
When Michael Scott was young.
