How Roses Came Red.

Roses at first were white,

Till they could not agree,

Whether my Sappho's breast

Or they more white should be.

But, being vanquish'd quite,

A blush their cheeks bespread;

Since which, believe the rest,

The roses first came red.

Poem by Robert Herrick, circa the 1600s. Public Domain.
