MY ROSE, by                
First Line: In my garden fair a rose
Last Line: My rose, -- on the lips of a lover.
Subject(s): Flowers; Love; Roses

In my garden fair a rose
On a long green branch was swaying,
"The sweetest flower that blows,"
Whispered the wind in its straying.

A hand reached over the wall,
To gather my rose entrancing,
A voice said, "Sweetest of all,
Come!" and the rose went dancing.

Empty my garden fair,
Bare the long branch swinging;
No butterflies linger there,
No birds pause in their winging.

I grieve not for sweetness gone,
That the brief bright day is over,
Dew-pearled in the radiant dawn,
My rose, -- on the lips of a lover.
