I am far from enamoured by the Rose.
The colour most gifted is often red.
Unoriginal it is mostly chose.
Men lay soft petals upon lover’s bed.
Do women not imagine so much more?
Other flowers that will not prick their skin!
Instead perhaps bright Sunflowers adore.
Neglecting other blossoms is a sin.
Select a yearning yellow daffodil,
or single splendid Poets Narcissus.
With these a glass vase I would rather fill.
Could they not garner a passionate kiss?
I’m enamoured by her in every way,
as I watch sweet Rose in the garden play.
