Letter To My Rose (Part D)

Just like polished gold among stones,
My pink rose blooms tall and pretty!
My eyes closed but my eyes awake,
Lo, a vision of ecstasy!

The sprawling light from the soft sun
Makes you all dazzling to my sight
Standing before your pink anthers,
See'ng brimming life in your pinkness.

As your pollens dance off coolly
Breezed by the wind on to my skin,
They bring coolness under the sun
And warmth alike in shrill coldness.

So pretty and graceful are you
Just like the delicate blossom,
Unveiling your enduring grace
And gentle charm like the diamond.

Your soft pink petals fill my nose
With love's unquenchable hunger
Crowning me with sweet killing thoughts;
Nestling my head in blissful dreams.

Your gracious life rains upon me
A joy standing out 'mong others,
And made whole by your love's wholeness,
I say ‘thank you' for all your love.

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
