INOPPORTUNE, by                    
First Line: Too brief her sun of beauty glows
Last Line: Not now, not now!
Subject(s): Beauty; Flowers; Passion; Roses


Too brief her sun of beauty glows;
The bud with dews of dawn is wet,
Some later day unfolds the rose —
Not now, not yet!


Too late his quickening passions plead,
I may nor leave nor break my vow.
Too late! no prayer may intercede —
Not now, not now!
