TO ROSA - William Knox Poems


Poems » william knox » to rosa


You are young, and I am older;
    You are hopeful, I am not --
Enjoy life, ere it grow colder --
    Pluck the roses ere they rot.

Teach your beau to heed the lay --
    That sunshine soon is lost in shade --
That now's as good as any day --
    To take thee, Rosa, ere she fade.
