The roses were deflowered by the rain
and fewer fragile blossoms still remain
their chastity a struggle to maintain

the pink and yellow petals coat the grass
forsaking their virginity en masse
like promises that never came to pass

while brutish icy droplets have their way
and lead them to the gutter where they lay
to either be baptized, or wilt away.
