The Last Rose of Summer ‘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, And give sigh for sigh, ____________ I’ll not leave thee thou lone one, To pine on the stem; Since the lovely are sleeping, Go sleep there with them. Thus kindly I scatter Thy leaves on the bed, Where thy mates of the garden Lie scentless and dead. ____________ So soon may I follow, When friendships decay, And from love’s shining circle The gems drop away. When true hearts lie wither’d, And fond ones are flown, Oh! who would inhabit This bleak world alone." _____________ _____________ Moore.
