The Last Roses

Having heavily pruned the
large bush by my front door
I gathered up the last few
roses, stood them in water
in a tall glass beside family
photos on the side board.

For two days they enhanced
them then all the petals
dropped in a compled heap.

Next day they were all
dry paper sepia brown.
