I. Disappointment in Love
The Shadow Rose
Robert Cameron Rogers (1862–1912)
 
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?
