 Red Roses against blue-green background

What color is the rose in autumn, my love?
Yellow was the rose in spring,
when the rain gently fell
caressing the moments,
and our love was everything –
Please tell me again, the color
of the autumn rose, love –
Red being its summertime hue
when in full blossom,
in the sun of the season,
love was all we knew –
Oh, tell me my love,
the shade of the autumn rose
that you will bring to my door!
Is  it the color of your
mellow brown eyes, reflecting
the colors from seasons before?
