Winter

A Poem by Michael R. Burch

Winter
by Michael R. Burch

 
The rose of love's bright promise
lies tattered by the thorn;
her scent was sweet
but at her feet
the pallid aphids mourn.
 

The lilac of devotion
has felt the winter hoar
and shed her dress;
companionless,
she shivers, nude and sore.
