I. Disappointment in Love
Ashes of Roses
Elaine Goodale Eastman (1863–1953)
 
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
