A Madrigal #3: 'When You Threw Roses'


You once threw roses that I caught to keep
To plant in a pot, I have cared for days
Most tended to wilt, but at least one stays

And for quite a while, sadness could not creep
All because the thought in my mind still plays
That you threw roses which I caught to keep
To plant in a pot, that I cared for days

Now the rose has bloomed with praises to reap
And rouses my muse with charm it displays
Radiantly arraigned, starting in some ways
From roses you threw that I caught to keep
To plant in a pot, I have cared for days
That tended to wilt, but at least one stays

Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
