Rose is the metaphor of female genitalia.
Rose is the code of young and dream.
Rose, changed by tears which Venus dedicated to the dead lover Adonis, is the symbol of love.
Rose is the blood of Christ and martyrs.
Rose is the Sacred Prayer dedicated to the Virgin Mary .
That day, the youth and dreams were being plundered and lost.
The Rose juice as red as blood, gloomy mildew in the sun day after day.
No longer young, no dream, until dry.
