  1. A White Rose
    Poet: John Boyle O'Reilly

    The red rose whispers of passion,
    And the white rose breathes of love;
    Oh, the red rose is a falcon,
    And the white rose is a dove.

    But I send you a cream-white rosebud
    With a flush on its petal tips;
    For the love that is purest and sweetest
    Has a kiss of desire on the lips.



  2. With A Rose
    Poet: Charles Henry Webb

    Lady, lest they should betray,
    On thy lips this rose I lay.

    Not its petals to surprise
    With a hue that theirs outvies.

    Not to shame them to confess
    Fragrance of the Rose is less -

    Only with a rose to seal
    Rosebud lips, lest they reveal -

    Faint unfolding, in their sleep -
    What a rose's heart should keep.

    Eden since, no wizard knows
    Spell that bindeth like the rose -

    Flower of Love, the last to leave,
    Bud that blossomed first for Eve.

    With my rose for lock and key
    None shall pick thy lips, pardie!

    But to me if they unclose -
    All is safe beneath the rose.



  3. Literally take a few minutes and smell the roses. Life goes by so fast. Stop and enjoy where you presently are.
Doug Brownstone


  4. Nobody Knows This Little Rose
    Poet: Emily Dickinson

    Nobody knows this little Rose -
    It might a pilgrim be
    Did I not take it from the ways
    And lift it up to thee.
    Only a Bee will miss it -
    Only a Butterfly,
    Hastening from far journey -
    On its breast to lie -
    Only a Bird will wonder -
    Only a Breeze will sigh -
    Ah Little Rose - how easy
    For such as thee to die!



  5. My Pretty Rose Tree
    Famous Poem by William Blake

    A flower was offered to me;
    Such a flower as May never bore
    . But I said I've a Pretty Rose-tree.
    And I passed the sweet flower o'er.

    Then I went to my Pretty Rose-tree:
    To tend her by day and by night.
    But my Rose turnd away with jealousy:
    And her thorns were my only delight.



  6. Roses A Poem by George Eliot You love the roses - so do I. I wish The sky would rain down roses, as they rain From off the shaken bush. Why will it not? Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!



  7. Garden Poem
    Poet: Hilda Doolittle

    You are clear
    O rose, cut in rock,
    hard as the descent of hail.

    I could scrape the colour
    from the petals
    like spilt dye from a rock.

    If I could break you
    I could break a tree.

    If I could stir
    I could break a tree -
    I could break you.

    O wind, rend open the heat,
    cut apart the heat,
    rend it to tatters.

    Fruit cannot drop
    through this thick air -
    fruit cannot fall into heat
    that presses up and blunts
    the points of pears
    and rounds the grapes.

    Cut the heat -
    plough through it,
    turning it on either side
    of your path.



  8. Roses do not bloom hurriedly; for beauty, like any masterpiece, takes time to blossom.”
  Matshona Dhliwayo


  9. The Rose Family
    A Famous Poem by Robert Frost

    The rose is a rose,
    And was always a rose.
    But the theory now goes
    That the apple's a rose,
    And the pear is, and so's
    The plum, I suppose.
    The dear only know
    What will next prove a rose.
    You, of course, are a rose -
    But were always a rose.
