    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.
