#TenderTuesday . . . . Time of Roses

.

Time of Roses

It was not in the Winter
Our loving lot was cast;
It was the time of roses—
We pluck’d them as we pass’d!

That churlish season never frown’d
On early lovers yet:
O no—the world was newly crown’d
With flowers when first we met!

‘Twas twilight, and I bade you go,
But still you held me fast;
It was the time of roses—
We pluck’d them as we pass’d!

By Thomas Hood.
