ROSES, by                
First Line: God made roses. / who made you,
Last Line: Worth a bunch of roses.
Subject(s): Flowers; Roses

God made roses. Who made you,
With your purple vesture?
Scorn my flowers and me too
With so great a gesture!

Some day I shall have forgot
Where your dust reposes,
Shall believe your spent heart not
Worth a bunch of roses.
