Rossetti done well...

I've been a fan of Christina Rossetti since childhood, and Jenny Agutter does as lovely a job of reading her poetry as she's ever done of acting. It might have done with being read a little more slowly, and I do wish the man who introduced it had bothered to pronounce Agutter's surname correctly, but it is nonetheless a sweet and romantic poem read very well in the brief time it requires.
