Clever! I like it!

But I don't know the Rosetti I'm afraid.

This is a parody of a poem by Christina Rossetti. Can you find out which one?


My guess is:

The roses lingered in her cheeks,
When fair Albina fainted;
Oh! gentle Reader, could it be
That fair Albina painted?

... and your guess is correct of course.
