Roses  Create an image from this poem
by George Eliot
 You love the roses - so do I.
I wish The sky would rain down roses, as they rain From off the shaken bush.
Why will it not? Then all the valley would be pink and white And soft to tread on.
They would fall as light As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!

by George Eliot
 'Mid my gold-brown curls 
There twined a silver hair: 
I plucked it idly out 
And scarcely knew 'twas there.
Coiled in my velvet sleeve it lay And like a serpent hissed: "Me thou canst pluck & fling away, One hair is lightly missed; But how on that near day When all the wintry army muster in array?"
