I wrote this when I was in first grade. I know exactly where the inspiration came from- one of my favorite books as a kid. Heck, it is still one of my favorite books.
im taking a mostly catch up day today. And reading this book again has made it. Christina Rosetti! I need to research her poems as I really dig them. It’s strange, there aren’t too many creative Christina’s I know. And when I actually look at Christina written out and sound it in my mouth, feel it, it is so strange that it is my name. Nothing like having a transgendered Swedish queen who renounced the thrown, converted to Catholicism and spent her final days in Rome as your namesake! It also is a family name, but the Scandinavian history of it makes me really happy!
so be happy with what you have. Sage six year old advice sent to my 34 year old self. I approve 6 year old me!
