The roses reminded me of the poem "The Sick Rose" written by William Blake, one of my favorite English poets. I remember I read this poem first time when I was 18 and during those years I got into the habit of reading English literature before bed at night. It was long time ago, but some poetry would jump up to my head whenever I saw an image, and "The Sick Rose" was just one of them.

William Blake (1757- 1827)

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.
