Faded ( and gone)



"'Tis the last rose of summer 
Left blooming alone; 
All her lovely companions 
Are faded and gone”

Thomas Moore

    1. You are right, MOORE, thanks, I added one more O !
      Yes, very "happy" poem ends with "Oh! who would inhabit,
      This bleak world alone?"

  2. My mother just used the term "last rose of summer" in relation to her messy hair the other day. I had never heard that saying before. She said, "I look worse than the last rose of summer"... and I laughed and laughed.

    What a lovely image.

  6. Nice poem. Reminds me of that Elton John song where he sings about an old man who visits the cemetery often, because that's where all his friends are.

    I try to lighten the mood a bit.
