Love Lies Bleeding (Amarantus Caudatus)
 
Love lies bleeding in the bed whereover
  Roses lean with smiling mouths or pleading:
Earth lies laughing where the sun’s dart clove her:
  Love lies bleeding.
        Swinburne—Love Lies Bleeding.
  1
This flower that first appeared as summer’s guest
Preserves her beauty ’mid autumnal leaves
And to her mournful habits fondly cleaves.
        WordsworthLove Lies Bleeding. (Companion Poem.)
