Roses


We are soft in the frosty
winter;
we are gentle in the heated
summer;
we are quiet in the dallied
spring;
we are one in the fading
autumn.
Our bodies glow
with martyr's blood;
pure as the virgin on the
crumbling earth.
Love gives its name to our
delicate skin,
and you shed a tear
when our necks are handed
like confections.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
