HallChall2: Blood

Blood red rose

My dream seemed absurd
In the pink glow of dawn;
Those hoofbeats I heard—
Mere drums in a song.
Then I saw the red rose
You left at my door:
So sweet to my nose;
Dripping blood on the floor.
My fingers were pricked,
By thorns vicious and vile;
I began to feel sick,
Then you appeared with a smile…
