Now that he could sit up, he could look out into the courtyard, and see the rosebush in its wine-jar, just outside his window. There was still one crimson rose among the dark leaves, but even as he watched, a petal fell from it like a great slow drop of blood. Soon the rest would follow. He had held his first and only command for just as long as the rosebush had been in flower…It was certainly pot-bound, he thought; maybe his successor would do something about it.
