      Description ''How soon the roses wither, ...''

      Notes Position: left, on reverse of ''Thy Happy Star''

      This item appears to be an unpublished manuscript, another poem written on the reverse side of the page that ''Thy Happy Star'' is written.  There are many corrections in Simms's hand, and he crosses out the second and third stanzas while folding the first stanza inward where it covers the second and third stanzas of ''Thy Happy Star.''
