A Sonnel is a moments monument,
Memorial from the soul's eternity,
26 one dead deathless hour Look That it be

,
Whether for lustral rite or dire portent,
Of its own intricate funefs reverent:

or in ebony,
As Day or Night prevail, and let Time see

Its Flowering crest impearled and orient.
D A Sonnel is a coin : its face reveals

The soul, its converse, to what Powertis due: --
Whether for tribute to the august appeais
Of Life, or dower in Love's high retinue,
It serve; or mid the dark wharf cavernous breath,

In Charon's palm it pay the toll to Death.
DG Rossetti promatre fecit Apr:27.1880
