murmurs in the rose

A tender heart, a loyal mind
Which with temptation I would trust

George Darley, The Loveliness of Love

i wish i had managed to convince you
to visit eighty-four charing cross road.
you can still change your mind and buy
a plane ticket twenty years in advance,
and in the meantime, in the evenings,
listen to the distant murmurs in the rose
