Gathering Rose Buds is an Italian jacquard wall tapestry. It portrays Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May, the first of 2 oil paintings on canvas created in 1908 by British Pre-Raphaelite artist, John William Waterhouse. It was inspired by the 17th century poem To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time by Robert Herrick which begins:
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today,
Tomorrow will be dying.
The companion piece to this one is #8400, Gathering Rose Buds.
