651. Time of Roses
  
IT was not in the Winter 
  Our loving lot was cast; 
It was the time of roses— 
  We pluck'd them as we pass'd! 
 
That churlish season never frown'd         5
  On early lovers yet: 
O no—the world was newly crown'd 
  With flowers when first we met! 
 
'Twas twilight, and I bade you go, 
  But still you held me fast;  10
It was the time of roses— 
  We pluck'd them as we pass'd!
