Is there no rose?

Is there no rose of pure delight
no lily white or blue bird wing
rival to your charms and opal skin.
Do I wake or am I sleeping,
honey-bees in sleepy drone
liquid sweetness from the
lotus bloom and honeysuckle arch
Such pure delight no rose can tell,
is there such and do I dream?

[Hata Bildir]
