Roses are dead,
Orchids have flown,
This crown of flowers
Has grown ugly and old.

Lilies are black,
Violets have thorns,
Soulís crown of flowers
Has grown heavy and cold.

Dark write done extremely well.

The flip side of a dazzling mirror. The irony here for me is that even in the expression of bleakness, there is a recognition of beauty in the mourning of beauty's loss. A splendid write.

Reviewed by Susan Sonnen 7/9/2006
I don't know how to describe my feelings about this other than that it a darkly beautiful piece...good work.
