A Rose
By Helen Gray Cone (1859–1934)
 
[From Oberon and Puck: Verses Grave and Gay. 1885.]

TOO-PERFECT Rose, thy heavy breath has power
  To wake a dim, an unexplained regret:
Art body to the soul of some deep hour
  That all my seasons have not yielded yet?
 
But if it be so—Hour, too-perfect Hour,        5
  Ah, blow not full, though all the yearning days
Should tremble bud-like, since the wind must shower
  Thine unreturning grace along the ways!
