A beautiful picture created of a lady living in an old gabled home young of face with greying locks, she keeps her tryst with yellow rose from her garden, so special for her and her love, which he had placed once long ago with a kiss in her locks declaring his love forever.. sweet melody..thank you for sharing this poem.
