Fair Rose, forget me not as summer wanes,
As autumn's chill, the winter snows portend,
O' senescence, begone thy curs'ed banes,
Steal not mine Rose, whose bloom shan't ever end,
As light of day gives way to vespertine,
And springtide flows as mist of distant haze,
Through which doth shine, jewel adamantine,
I ever shall, upon thy beauty gaze,
Thou dost Fair Rose, take me through time's portal,
As gaze upon, the joys of life replete,
Thy tender kiss, memories immortal,
For in thine arms, have lived a life complete.
Fair Rose, if t'will be within mine power,
Shall ever gaze, upon thy satin flower.
