„If love were what the rose is,
And I were like the leaf,
Our lives would grow together
In sad or singing weather“

—  Algernon Charles Swinburne, buch Poems and Ballads

"A Match", line 1.
Poems and Ballads (1866-89)
Kontext: If love were what the rose is,
And I were like the leaf,
Our lives would grow together
In sad or singing weather,
Blown fields or flowerful closes,
Green pasture or gray grief;
If love were what the rose is,
And I were like the leaf.

And the fair lily springs from loathsome weed.“

Che de le spine ancor nascon le rose,
E d'una fetida erba nasce il giglio.

And never a spray of yew.
In quiet she reposes:
Ah! would that I did too.“

„Come near; I would, before my time to go,
Sing of old Eire and the ancient ways:
Red Rose, proud Rose, sad Rose of all my days.“

—  W.B. Yeats Irish poet and playwright 1865 - 1939

To The Rose Upon The Rood Of Time
The Rose (1893)
Kontext: Come near, come near, come near — Ah, leave me still
A little space for the rose-breath to fill!
Lest I no more hear common things that crave;
The weak worm hiding down in its small cave,
The field-mouse running by me in the grass,
And heavy mortal hopes that toil and pass;
But seek alone to hear the strange things said
By God to the bright hearts of those long dead,
And learn to chaunt a tongue men do not know.
Come near; I would, before my time to go,
Sing of old Eire and the ancient ways:
Red Rose, proud Rose, sad Rose of all my days.

I gather'd the blushing rose—and sigh'd—
I come from the rose-grove, mother,
I come from the grove of roses.“

Kontext: I'm a little nervous about saying anything about "the Artist" because it kind of sticks him right between the eyes, but he deserves it. Warhol really fucked up a great many people's - young people's - lives. My introduction to heavy drugs came through the Factory. I liked the introduction to drugs I received. I was a good target for the scene; I blossomed into a healthy young drug addict.
