Hi,

I am analyzing a poem which is Sick Rose by William Blake.

O Rose thou art sick.
The invisible worm,
That flies in the night
In the howling storm:

Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy:
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.

I need to know the persona in this poem. I know neither the worm or rose are the persona. Really confused.
