Dried Rose – 18

Dried Rose - 18

“Loveliest of lovely things are they on earth that soonest pass away. The rose that lives its little hour is prized beyond the sculptured flower.”
William Cullen Bryant

  1. The flower that smiles today
    Tomorrow dies;
    All that we wish to stay
    Tempts and then flies;
    What is this world’s delight?
    Lightning, that mocks the night,
    Brief even as bright.–
    Virtue, how frail it is!–
    Friendship, how rare!–
    Love, how it sells poor bliss
    For proud despair!
    But these though they soon fall,
    Survive their joy, and all
    Which ours we call.–

    Whilst skies are blue and bright,
    Whilst flowers are gay,
    Whilst eyes that change ere night
    Make glad the day;

    Whilst yet the calm hours creep,
    Dream thou – and from thy sleep
    Then wake to weep

    Percy Bysshe Shelley
