Well Fair Summer farewell

Quote by John Keats:- "i almost wish we were butterflies and lived but three summer days - three such days with you i could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain" 

one word is a seed
from which many
could grow
thoughts spring
like weeds
from which i
could sow
wild rambling prose
or poems with
rhyme
but summer like
the rose
fades with time

  5. You don't fade, dear Rose.
    The quote by Keats is a jewel. I think if we lived only three days - one in childhood, another one in youth and a last one in old age - we wouldn't waist our little time in wars, but in enjoying life.
    There will come more summers and other roses will bloom...
    A hug.
