Dozen Roses


A dozen roses,
I give to you my friend.
A red rose for the friendship we share,
A purple rose for the touch,
A claret rose for the trust we share,
A pink rose for the kindness,
An orange rose for the comfort given,
A blue rose for the laughter,
A white rose for the commpassion,
A violet rose for the dreams we share,
A magenta rose for the deep respect,
A coral rose for the love we feel,
A yellow rose for bringing me sunshine.
And the last rose,
For it stands so tall and proud,
A rainbow rose that represents you,
My best friend of all.

    JAMEALKA - I am honoured to be Numero Uno again commentswise! ! ! ! This is a lovely poem again with structured repetition for emphasis. A dozen roses i s always a token of Freindship and i have registered as your friend. The 'Language of Roses' is a very interesting study and I love the sentiments you have selected. They are all the elements of True Friendship which makes this a perfect poem in CONTENT as well as STRUCTURE. Red = friendship Purple = touch Claret = trust Pink = kindness Orange = comfort Blue = laughter White = compassion Violet = dreams Magenta = respect Coral = Love Yellow = Sunshine Rainbow = Your Friend. the poem makes me want to be the rainbow Rose. Thanks for a lovely poem - love in poetry - JOHN (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
