Yellow Roses


Roses for a
love
that's wanting
and
Oh! so true.
Roses for a sweet,
gentle creature
An embelm of light
in my days of
despair.
Roses for a
treasure beyond
price
That can never
be replaced.
Roses for being
my rock on
life's stormy
seas.
Roses for your
smile that can
dry an ocean
of tears.
Roses for your
beauty
That can make
even heaven
envy.
Roses, the hue
of the sun,
smiling down on
you.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
