A Rose

What longing lore of love do your petals enfold
Your sweet seductive fragrance I to behold
Bloom in rapture and radiant red array
The kiss of waters upon your petals lay.

Red Roses are my favorite flowers. . . and this is exactly why. You have captured all that they mean to me beautifully. Thank you.

The photo was taken by my son Christopher- He too, is drawn to red roses - I was so inspired by the beauty of that particular rose that the words just revealed themselves to me.
