Christina Rossetti: Somewhere or Other

Somewhere or Other

Somewhere or other there must surely be   The face not seen, the voice not heard, The heart that not yet—never yet—ah me!     Made answer to my word.
Somewhere or other, may be near or far;   Past land and sea, clean out of sight; Beyond the wandering moon, beyond the star     That tracks her night by night.
Somewhere or other, may be far or near;   With just a wall, a hedge, between; With just the last leaves of the dying year     Fallen on a turf grown green.
