Here you will find the Poem Summer Has Come Without the Rose of poet Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy

Summer Has Come Without the Rose

Has summer come without the rose, 
Or left the bird behind? 
Is the blue changed above thee, 
O world! or am I blind? 
Will you change every flower that grows, 
Or only change this spot, 
Where she who said, I love thee, 
Now says, I love thee not?

The skies seemed true above thee, 
The rose true on the tree; 
The bird seemed true the summer through, 
But all proved false to me.
