A Dead Rose Comments

Rating: 3.5
O Rose! who dares to name thee?
No longer roseate now, nor soft, nor sweet;
But pale, and hard, and dry, as stubble-wheat,---
Kept seven years in a drawer---thy titles shame thee.


Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The fly that lit upon thee, To stretch the tendrils of its tiny feet, Along thy leaf's pure edges, after heat, - - If lighting now, - -would coldly overrun thee. a very fine poem. tony

Beautiful, deep, captivating sun...in thy gorgeous urn...bloom, and flower to burn Statement about the past, abandonment, and change Fully descriptive Brings attention to the ideal of living completely in the present moment, cherishing with total mindfulness, thankfulness, and grace.

Yes like the rose they fall for us When we are pink and sweet sixteen But time is short and petals fall And few come visiting in between Our lives are also like roses stretched into longer spans. When pink cheeks wrinkle with age few heads will turn when you pass by. Fresh roses have to fall and manure the earth so that new buds are born. All ye poets who read this are welcome to my page too...

Such elegance in rhyme and meter; so sweet sounding and heart-pounding.

How beautiful Her description of a memento of love kept seven years. Yet though fade the love it inspired is still fresh. The contrast to the living roses which have not half the love or life even if it is dried and lifeless. What could be more personal.

this is an extraordinary piece.......never ave i seen or read anyone else avin love 4 a dead rose and feeling debted towards it from heart.......i really believe that heart owes much love to the dead rose 4 it was a heart that fell for it and plucked it from its abode, where it was enjoyin so much of nature's love......, and it wa a heart that shut it up in a drawer to die.

I Really don't like Her poems at all. they don't make any sense to me and they have nothing to do with personal life.

I've always liked Browning. She has such a descriptiveness about her writing.
