Why does a birthday have an upbeat view of love even though it was written after Rossetti had lost all her earthly loves?
Some can interpret this poem to be about divine love, or the sturcture is very balenced and regular, making the tone of the poem more sober than it seems on face value. This therefore can be suggesting that this happiness could be a memory.
