TO -, WITH A ROSE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I asked my heart to stay
Last Line: I send a rose unto a rose.
Subject(s): Flowers; Roses


I ASKED my heart to say
Some word whose worth my love's devoir might pay
Upon my Lady's natal day.
Then said my heart to me:
Learn from the rhyme that now shall came to thee
What fits thy Love most lovingly.
This gift that learning shows;
For, as a rhyme unto its rhyme-twin goes,
I send a rose unto a Rose.
