Rose poetry

Rose poetry is almost as popular as all time favorite is on the homepage.

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 rose bud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.
~ John Boyle O'Rielly 1844-1890

And sang it for the rose to hear....
