1526. Ashes of Roses
 
By Elaine Goodale Eastman
 
 
SOFT on the sunset sky
  Bright daylight closes,
Leaving, when light doth die,
Pale hues that mingling lie,—
  Ashes of roses.        5
 
When love’s warm sun is set,
  Love’s brightness closes;
Eyes with hot tears are wet,
In hearts there linger yet
  Ashes of roses.        10
