    Dear Raju Basu,

    Edmund Waller has written this poem and he is the author, there is no doubt but he lived in the year 1606 to 1687, he can't answer you.

    Dear Mr. Edmund Waller

    This same poem has been submitted in this web site by one Ms. Ayesha Raoof.

    I suppose she has just copy pasted the poem from you.

    Like Robert Herrick's 'Gather ye rose-buds while ye may, ' and Andrew
    Marvell's 'Had we but world enough and time, ' Waller's 'Go, lovely rose' is one of English poetry's great 'seize the day' poems: a love lyric that cautions the beloved that life is too short to withold love. Waller's ingenious variation of this popular 17th century theme is NOT to address the beloved directly but indirectly, instead addressing the rose (symbol of love) to speak on his behalf. A beautifully-made, beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
