Jaded by Time


It is autumn; not without

But within me is the cold.
Youth and spring are all about,
It is I that have grown old.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

So beautiful. There is something special about a fading rose. I almost like them more then when fresh picked.

beautiful photo...but the poem is a little sad when i think of a certain birthday i'm having next week. :( but if a rose is still beautiful as it ages...we can be all the more beautiful with the wisdom and love we gain every year, right?
