Poetry And Roses

 

There are roses of yellow

pink, white, and red;

Sometimes a mixture of colors

so beautifully bred.

 

Accentuated by lovely

radiant leaves of green;

have even a protector-

in thorns to be seen.

 

A language of eloquence

is what they speak;

when you can't find the words

and your spirit is weak.

 

Of beauty, truth, and honor

and great humility too;

speaking the "Language of Love,"

is what a rose will do.

 

If all that burns within you

is of passion and desire;

its fiery red petals

are symbolic of this fire.

 

In insatiable want

and the inferno won't heed;

the powerful red rose

is what you will need.

 

Standing alone

or in a beautiful bouquet;

roses carry such power

in all that they say.

 

Forgive me if it seems

that I am out of line;

here's a beautiful red rose:

"To your heart- from mine."

 

Sincerely, Godwin H. Barton
