The Dry Rose That Never Fades


                                  pressed Rose from first spring
                                  in pages of book to read 
                                  ...without mascara

Just in case it's not obvious: Spring!

    This is on a higher plane. That last line has mystique and encourages so much pause that it becomes a keeper. You pulled that off well. Thank you as always, Gerard
