Then how grace a rose? I know a way! Leave it, rather. Must you gather? Smell, kiss, wear it- -at last, throw away! The reality of love and life we come like buds floer fragrant smell than the flavour is immense when the rose is in her hair later in library books will it lay till some one comes and finds it with a signature yours in paper mache then memories of yours would a secret remain in books when one opens who was she the poets lover maybe sorry my apology Robert Browning

I've always had some contempt for this work it seems so beneath the great works of Browning, so average if you will.

After the romantic poets like Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley and John Keats, the poet remains fresh in mind is Robert Browning only! This poem is just one piece to say his name but other poems of his are better than this! It is just like 'heard melodies are sweet but unheard melodies are sweeter! '
