Proserpine by Dante Gabriel Rossetti

I really loved these two poems about Proserpine / Persephone by Swinburne that were in the Melittabenu blog post entitled Requiescat in Pace, Georg Luck. I do not read poetry much and had to read them twice to get a little of their depth about the subject of Death.

I so do so Love the Pre-Raphaelite painters though, most of which of whom are listed at the bottom of this link.
