That which God said to the rose,
and caused it to laugh in full-blown beauty,
He said it to my heart, and made it
a hundred times more beautiful.
Thank you Inda for bringing back the beautiful roses topic. I just brought back your image from the previous page.
I love roses.
Roses are all blooming once more, enjoy their beautiful colours and scent.
What a beautiful thread, and it does justice to the roses.
Thomas Moore (1779-1852)
'TIS THE LAST ROSE OF SUMMER
'TIS the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone ;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone ;
No flower of her kindred,
No rose-bud is nigh,
To reflect back her blushes,
Or give sigh for sigh.
I'll not leave thee, thou lone one !
To pine on the stem ;
Since the lovely are sleeping,
Go sleep thou with them.
Thus kindly I scatter
Thy leaves o'er the bed,
Where thy mates of the garden
Lie scentless and dead.
So soon may I follow,
When friendships decay,
And from Love's shining circle
The gems drop away.
When true hearts lie wither'd,
And fond ones are flown,
Oh ! who would inhabit
This bleak world alone ?
It is not the last rose yet, summer has just begun s few weeks ago, but I like this poem. I have also heard the song.
Roses are blooming again. Enjoy their beauty and scent.
I really enjoy all the roses which are in full bloom at the moment.
