This poem can also be interpreted as the culture in society we leave when
we pass away. The lady may die but the fragrance of the rose essence can
make her immortal.

This has to be my favorite ED poem. When the rose petals are wrung, all
that is left is the oil. When her life is over (wrung) all that is left is
the poetry. When she passed her poetry was found stacked in her dresser
drawer and wrapped in red ribbon. Did anyone else read it that way? Be
