To Rosa - Poem by Abraham Lincoln

You are young, and I am older;
You are hopeful, I am not -
Enjoy life, ere it grow colder -
Pluck the roses ere they rot.

Teach your beau to heed the lay -
That sunshine soon is lost in shade -
That now's as good as any day -
To take thee, Rosa, ere she fade.

    Nice poem,
    Teach your beau to heed the lay -
    That sunshine soon is lost in shade -
    That now's as good as any day -
    To take thee, Rosa, ere she fade.
