OH, beware, sister mine, of the gardens
Where the white roses bleed themselves red,
And the winds are a'moan in the shadows
O'er the ashes of red roses dead.

There the dawn is a message of anguish,
And the merciful angels behold
The scarred and the shriveling petals
Of roses adrift from the fold.

And their tears gently fall through the stardust,
A sorrow-torn, pitiful dew,
On the lives that have lost all their fragrance,
On the dreams that can never come true.
