an incident in a rose gardedn
This storyboard does not have a description.
Sir, I encountered Death Just now among our roses. Thin as a scythe he stood there. I knew him by his pictures. I ran until I found you. Sir, I am quitting my job. I want to see my sons Once more before I die. I want to see California.
We shook hands and he was off .
I watched him pinch one bloom off And hold it to his nose– A connoisseur of roses– One bloom and then another. They strewed the earth around him
Sir, you must be that stranger Who threatened my gardener. This is my property, sir. I welcome only friends here.
Death grinned, and his eyes lit up With the pale glow of those lanterns Now with great care he slid The glove from his right hand And held that out in greeting, A little cage of bone.
Sir, I knew your father, And we were friends at the end. As for your gardener, I did not threaten him. Old men mistake my gestures. I only meant to ask him To show me to his master. I take it you are he?
