C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Annius Florus
Roses
Roman Poets of the Later Empire
 
Translation of Harriet Waters Preston

ONCE more the genius of the laughing spring
          Doth roses bring.
A spear-like point amid the under green
          Is one day seen,
The next a swelling bud, the next we greet        5
          The rose complete;
Whose race, before another set of sun,
          Will all be run.
Gather then, quickly, ere this glory’s o’er,
          Or nevermore!        10
