Poetry Friday: Roses and Rue by Oscar Wilde

May 22nd, 2009 (05:23 am)

Current Mood: peaceful
Current Song: Hear Me Out by Frou Frou

You were always afraid of a shower,
Just like a flower:
I remember you started and ran
When the rain began.

I remember I never could catch you,
For no one could match you,
You had wonderful, luminous, fleet,
Little wings to your feet.

- from Roses and Rue by Oscar Wilde
