1187. The Mystery
 
By Lilian Whiting
 
 
YOU gave me roses, love, last night,
When the sea was blue and the skies were bright;
And the earth was aglow with a golden light
When you gave me roses, love, last night.
 
Lilies I lay by your side to-day,        5
And your face—it is colder and whiter than they;
And I linger and listen and wonder and pray,
As I bring you lilies to-day.
