i love this poem to me it symbolizes the need to have faith and to grab
life's opportunities as they come, that nothing is gained by doing nothing.
i also believe it might have a religous theme in that they have to ask as
beggars to the mistress who-were-you and she comes mistily shining.

I think that what people are missing here is the most important element.
The abandoned house is key. If this wee about sex or simply following ones
dreams, what is the point of the abandoned home? I this might be about
forging a new relationship in the shadow of an old one or perhaps stealing
joy/moving on in the aftermath of loss. We have to give ourselves
permission to be happy, just as we have to ask the imagined owner of the
abandoned home permission to take the roses.

Samantha, I find your idea to match. It seams very likely. I do agree with
you. And he did a wonderful job of hiding it from the people whom would
just look over it quick.

The allusion to Herrick is from his poem "To the Virgins, to make much of
Time" Basically, I believe the whole poem is a reference to sex and what
have you. The girl recognizes she will not always be able to pick roses. A
sort of carpe diem mentality. Asking for roses is an obvious euphemish of
asking for sex. etc etc. I'm also writing a paper on this :/

I think that the house represents the unknown and frightning things in lie
and if you want to get good things out of life (roses) you have to go up
and knock on the frightning things doors or else the good things will fall
unpicked and you won't have the oppertunity to experience them
