Pale Roses

It has been brought up to my attention lately. And for once, I decided to investigate the poet behind the haunting entry of an early dearly cherished and old sci-fi saga.

Short summer-time and then, my heart's desire ,
The winter and the darkness: one by one
The roses fall, the pale roses expire
Beneath the slow decadence of the sun .

Ernest Dowson "Transition"
