Roses red and roses white
Plucked I for my love's delight.
She would none of all my posies--
Bade me gather her blue roses.
Half the world I wandered through,
Seeking where such flowers grew.

Answered me with laugh and jest.

But my silly love had died
Seeking with her latest breath
Roses from the arms of Death.
