Roses are beautiful and come in many colors. If one pays attention to symbolic colors, one might be choosey. In one of her poems, Marianne Moore expressed her distate for yellow roses because yellow betokens infidelity and ill; whereas, a white rose means well.
''Offering rose at the feet of God,
Rose itself feels proud of performing,
Its duty for the sake of Lord,
Taking the last breath from this world
Gives it a nice farewell.''
a very nice poem, a noble feeling.10++
