“The Little Rose Is Dust, My Dear”
By Grace Hazard Conkling
THE LITTLE rose is dust, my dear;
  The elfin wind is gone
That sang a song of silver words
  And cooled our hearts with dawn.
And what is left to hope, my dear,        5
  Or what is left to say?
The rose, the little wind and you
  Have gone so far away.
