The Sick Rose

Rating: 3.1

O Rose, thou art sick!
The invisible worm
That flies in the night,
In the howling storm,

Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy:
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.

To me, this poem is a metaphor for cancer. It was beautifully set to music by Benjamin Britten: https: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=9Z8W177eCIY
