A requiem - When I am dead my dearest
Composed in:1948
Musical form:song
Text/libretto:Christina (Georgina) Rossetti (1830 - 1894)
"When I am dead, my dearest", published ca. 1949, for voice and piano.
When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.

Christina Rossetti
