"In William Blake’s The Sick Rose poem, he uses the traditional symbol of the rose in an unconventional way. Generally used to signify passion and romantic love, Blake uses it in this poem to show the destructive power of a selfish love. The rose is a symbol of love, but is also susceptible to the damage caused by it. "
O Rose, thou art sick!
The invisible worm
That flies in the night,
In the howling storm,
Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy:
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.
its not for me, but for a friend. She cant figure out the poem. Anyone want to give their 2 cents?
