Soon There Will Be Roses


Soon there will be roses
Adorning gardens fair
Soon there will be roses
Their perfume everywhere

Roses white and yellow
Soft pink and crimson too
Roses in the sunlight
Bedecked with morning dew

When I touch the roses
Caress them tenderly
If I feel them quiver
I’ll know you still love me

Roses hold a secret
A secret in my heart
Roses are a symbol
Of love to thus impart

Soon there will be roses
I wait for them to bloom -
Roses sweet and fragrant
Shall sanctify my room

    Lovely lilting rhythm throughout the poem, touching the strings
    of my heart and playing them like a violin with love, as the roses
    bloom interiorly. Thank you for such a beautiful poetical vision.

    Soon There Will Be Roses was wonderful and beautifully written for the first week of spring. It was lovely, and every word was inspiring. The reader is like a butterfly, soaking in the magnificent aroma in a garden with hushed whispers in the shadows about the secret special meaning of Love. So well written.

    Hi Val, So succinct, but full of love, and memories, I love the line If I feel them quiver I'll know you still love me. The caressing of the petals, it is life like, because roses bring that emotive
    feeling to feel their soft, velvet smoothness.
    I love it Val (Report) Reply

    A lovely tribute to roses that tells of their significance to you. I agree, roses - even a single rose - add grace and fragrance to a room. (Report) Reply
