Tossed bouquet

there is always an entire bouquet of roses stuck into the bushes
of a neighbors house in our alley...they vary in color, still wrapped in cellophane, until
they turn brown and are replaced with a fresh bunch of roses. sometimes, they are
accompanied by dying balloons.

The Year by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
"What can be said in New Year rhymes, that's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go, we know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light, we lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings, we curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed, we wreathe our brides, we sheet  our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear, and that's the burden of the year."
