Give Me a Rosebud

Give Me A Rosebud

by Aurora Vane

March 1883

“Ere summer, on unsandaled feet,

Goes, with her wealth of roses sweet,

Oh, darling one, please give to me

A rosebud, sweet and fair to see.

A lovely rose of creamy-white,

Oft kissed by shining rays of light,

And oft refreshed by gentle dew

And summer rain. Oh, dear one true,

Please let this lovely rosebud be

A token of thy love to me.

Oh, give me, dear, a rosebud fair,

That thou hast watched with tender care.

Perfect its beauty; for I know

Its loveliness would rarer grow

Beneath the gleamings of thine eyes,

Bright as the blue of sapphire skies,

A sacred treasure it wall be,

A token of thy love to me.
