A birthday

author of text

A birthday is one of my favourite Rossetti poems. The heart of the poet is likened to ‘a singing bird’ and ‘an apple tree whose boughs are bent with thickest fruit’. And so her love is reflected in the surrounding nature, and we are reminded of our native wildlife and flora and the way in which our natural habitats inevitably become part of the people we are.
