1487. The Shadow Rose
 
By Robert Cameron Rogers
 
 
A NOISETTE on my garden path
  An ever-swaying shadow throws;
But if I pluck it strolling by,
  I pluck the shadow with the rose.
 
Just near enough my heart you stood        5
  To shadow it,—but was it fair
In him, who plucked and bore you off,
  To leave your shadow lingering there?
