To Hilda of Her Roses
 
Grace Hazard Conkling
 
 
ENOUGH has been said about roses
To fill thirty thick volumes;
There are as many songs about roses
As there are roses in the world
That includes Mexico … the Azores … Oregon …        5
 
It is a pity your roses
Are too late for Omar …
It is a pity Keats has gone …
 
Yet there must be something left to say
Of flowers like these!        10
Adventurers,
They pushed their way
Through dewy tunnels of the June night …
Now they confer …
A little tremulous …        15
Dazzled by the yellow sea-beach of morning …
 
If Herrick would tiptoe back …
If Blake were to look this way …
Ledwidge, even!
