The Sick Rose

(Untitled, 1970 by Mark Rothko, 1903-1970, American

Unfortunately, even the most passionate romance can turn.


O Rose, thou art sick!
The invisible worm,
That flies in the night,
In the howling storm,
Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy;
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.

~ William Blake, 1757-1827, English poet, painter, engraver, and mystic visionary
