ROSES BLUSHING RED AND WHITE, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
Last Line: For death
Alternate Author Name(s): Alleyne, Ellen; Rossetti, Christina
Subject(s): Flowers


Roses blushing red and white,
For delight;
Honeysuckle wreaths above,
For love;
Dim sweet-scented heliotrope,
For hope;
Shining lilies tall and straight,
For royal state;
Dusky pansies, let them be
For memory;
With violets of fragrant breath,
For death.
