Quote of the Week

“Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone;
No flower of her kindred,
No rosebud is nigh,
To reflect back her blushes,
Or give sigh for sigh.”

“The Last Rose of Summer”, Stanza 1.
Thomas Moore [1780-1852].

From Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations by John Bartlett.
Published by Little, Brown and Company. 1955. Page 439.
