The Roses on the Terrace

         
      Rose, on this terrace fifty years ago,
          When I was in my June, you in your May,
      Two words, My Rose, set all your face aglow,
          And now that I am white and you are gray,
      That blush of fifty years ago, my dear,
          Blooms in the past, but close to me to-day,
      As this red rose, which on our terrace here
          Glows in the blue of fifty miles away.
