in long-ago rooms

  3. ...I've always found something a little depressing about cut roses - I am a weird one as I prefer longer lasting flowers - almost simple everyday ones. It is a poem that makes one think as summer is what most people long for.

  11. Yes, it can be sad, and why I don't really like cut flower too much. It does make me sad to see them die.
