First Line: Oh if I were the velvet rose
Last Line: More red than roses blow.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Flowers; Roses


Oh if I were the velvet rose
Upon the red rose vine,
I'd climb to touch his window
And make his casement fine.

And if I were the little bird
That twitters on the tree,
All day I'd sing my love for him
Till he should harken me.

But since I am a maiden
I go with downcast eyes,
And he will never hear the songs
That he has turned to sighs.

And since I am a maiden
My love will never know
That I could kiss him with a mouth
More red than roses blow.
