Last Rose of Summer

As the season slowed down this past autumn, my Queen Elizabeth rose bush gave me that last robust bloom. And when I was thinking about this flower and how it was special, I came upon this poem…

“‘Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone.”
– Thomas Moore, The Last Rose of Summer, 1830
