A Valentine Rose to remember


The Rose

The rose will wither in the days to come
However, not the memories of where it is from.
In a vase stands tall your rose,
When it dies, I will find a book
To press its Memory for a later look,
your Precious rose will never die,
To live on, a feast for
Someone’ else’s eyes.

    Dear Charles, there is a church near me that holds a bible on a little table just as you go inside one of the main doors, and between the pages at the front of the book is a wonderful flower pressing that looks like a clymatus, it has been there treasured for many years and strangely when I first opened up the book I had a trememdous sence of love and peace,
    It was kept for a lady I think by her true love right the way through the war time, Somethings really do last, Thankyou for the reminder, Love Duncan (Report) Reply

    This is a great hit...beatiful, short poem full of faith and lovely images. This poem is virtually equivalent to a valentine rose! !

    Love,

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
