Winter's Last Rose Poem by Dominic Windram

Winter's Last Rose

Rating: 4.8

Winter's last rose; rose of regret:
O how once your radiant beauty
Shimmered in summer's potent hour.
Now your faded petals offer,
Only a glimpse of that power.

Now diamond points of ice cruelly
Surround your flesh pink, Christ like presence.
The whine of winter's bitter song;
The cold claws of grief; the grey silence:
The landscape scorns its chosen one.

Neglected rose; rose of regret.

How pleased am I, and I feel as if I wrote it.. The last winter rose; A rose of remorse: it is considered a form of another meaning, it can be applied to the whole life, so your poems live without dying because they are out of space and time, well done for this wonderful work..10/10
