Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bring Me a Rose (in the Wintertime)
The same idea occurs in one of the most-sung of all Turkish folksongs:

Zemheri ayında (canım) gül ister benden

"in the month of December (my love) it [fate] wants roses from me"

The song is "Bilmem su felegin", you can find many versions of it on YouTube, done in an amazing variety of different ways.
