Text Appearing Before Image:
he bright beauty of a summer deadShines in your face and form, O rose of mine!Blooming so late dressed all in dusky redWith shades and broiderings and graceful lineThat speaks to me of beauty like your ownWhich lately shown in this loved garden spotWhere now I come to mourn them and aloneI find you blooming gaily, though forgot. Your petals softly modelled, are as sweetAs those your sister roses wore of late.Sweeter perhaps, I know not, and you greetMe with a courage and a grace sedate.For you no sunny sky or langourous days.For you the autumns chill and clouded sky.One burst of sunshine—lo our wondering gazeYou hold out promise fair and message high. Prized far beyond those others who did lateCrowd in such bright profusion, summer-kissed.And for your gay presumption, some kind fateHas kept for you alone the joy they missed.Supreme you reign over the garden youWould have bloomed in unnoticed months ago;And for your daring we give homage true.A Queen of roses, may you linger so! [42]

Text Appearing After Image:
