a tribute to Bukowski?

a withering rose
wilting away
another petal falls
each passing day

each petal fallen,
pieces stripped away,
while the flower may disappear,
the roots always stay

the flower much like a book,
not forgotten on it's close,
Ma cambiera stagione,
ci saranno nuove rose

I'm calling this a tribute to bukowski because i wrote it now, while slightly drunk.  and i'm going to dedicate it to my friend Stephanie, who ultimately was the inspiration for it.  Plus she brought the last two lines to my attention quite some time ago. For those not keen on their italian, the last two lines translated is "the season will change, there will be new roses"
