Amid The Roses - Poem by John Bannister Tabb

There was laughter 'mid the Roses,
For it was their natal day;
And the children in the garden were
As light of heart as they.


There were sighs amid the Roses,
For the night was coming on;
And the children-weary now of play-
Were ready to be gone.


There are tears amid the Roses,
For the children are asleep;
And the silence of the garden makes
The lonely blossoms weep.
