Daily Poem – Song

July 12, 2006

Song

OH ! roses for the flush of youth,
And laurel for the perfect prime ;
But pluck an ivy-branch for me,
Grown old before my time.
Oh ! violets for the grave of youth,
And bay for those dead in their prime ;
Give me the withered leaves I chose
Before in the olden time.
