Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
1464. At Twilight
 
By Peyton Van Rensselaer
 
 
THE ROSES of yesteryear
  Were all of them white and red:
It fills my heart with silent fear
  To find all their beauty fled.
 
The roses of white are sere,        5
  All faded the roses of red;
And one who loves me is not here,
  And one that I love is dead.
