    Rossetti was a painter and a poet. His true strength in poetry was being able to paint a picture with words, a picture that he could eventually put onto canvas. His poems have such a lyrical quality to them and are best read aloud. One of my favorite poems by Rossetti is titled "The Card Dealer" and was written after seeing a painting by Theodor von Holst. Rossetti used vivid details while describing the woman in the painting. This can be seen in the fourth stanza, when he writes "Her fingers le Rossetti was a painter and a poet.

One of my favorite poems by Rossetti is titled "The Card Dealer" and was written after seeing a painting by Theodor von Holst. Rossetti used vivid details while describing the woman in the painting. This can be seen in the fourth stanza, when he writes "Her fingers let them softly through/Smooth polished silent things;/And each one as it falls reflects/In swift light-shadowings,/Blood-red and purple, green and blue,/The great eyes of her rings." I love how beautifully written his poetry is and can only hope to be able to richly describe a subject as well as Rossetti.
