I cannot bear the beauty of one rose,
Therefore, I pray you, give me two or three --
A nosegay of them, that my eye may be
Distracted, and not linger over-long
On one; its heart holds too much mystery;
Within it burn the holy vestal fires
Of all the world's deep longings and desires;
All loveliness is there; so soft among
These tender petals such perfection glows,
I cannot bear the beauty of one rose.
