Flowers for Friday Again and Again

High Society

As in a Dream

Last night in the light rain as rough winds blew,
My drunken sleep left me no merrier.
I question one that raised the curtain, who
Replies: "The wild quince trees -- are as they were."
But no, but no!
Their rose is waning, and their green leaves grow.

You didn't think that I was out of rose photos, did you? ;-)

Well, it may be odd to jump from a Song Dynasty poet to a 1956 musical, but there's an underlying theme at work here.
