Love Poetry: The Angelic Wombat

A drawing by Dante Gabriel Rosetti
featuring his beloved wombat, Top.
Who can resist the Rossettis? Not me, for darn sure. 

Beautiful, creative, scandalous.

Wombat lovers.

The Wombat

OH how the family affections combat
Within this heart, and each hour flings a bomb at
My burning soul! Neither from owl nor from bat
Can peace be gained until I clasp my wombat. 

I don't have that much poetry by heart, but this is going to be added to the store.
