And I will come again, my Luve, Tho’ it were ten thousand mile.— Robert Burns The Sick RoseO 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 Hope in ElizabethFrom the train it’s a city of roses and rose keepers, bald men in spectacles and torn shirts.

There are miles of roses in Elizabeth, New Jersey,backyard arbors shadowed by refineries and the turnpike, jungles of scrap, still brown water, and poisoned marsh.None of this matters to the rose keepers of Elizabeth. From the backyards of row houses they bring forth pink roses, yellow roses and around a house on its own green plot, a hedge of roses, in red and white.Surely faith and charity are fine, but the greatest of these is roses.— Kathleen Norris
