The roses were all red, the ivy was all black:
dear if you turn your head, all my despairs come back.
The sky was too blue, too kind, the sea too green,
and the air too calm: and i know in my mind i shall
wake and not find you there.
I am tired of the box-tree's shine and the holly's,
that never will pass, and the plain's unending line,
and of all but you, alas!
ps- tash's grad went beautifully. she looked so amazing. i will post pics soon.
