faded rose

I’ll be dating myself with this memory but here goes…

As a little girl growing up in the 70’s, I loved the song ‘Delta Dawn’ by Tanya Tucker. I can’t look at a rose without hearing the line: “Delta Dawn, what’s that flower you have on? Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?”

To this day, I can’t seem to envision a rose any other way.
