On Receiving a Rose

The rose you presented on parting, my dear
This elegant gift adorns my coat collar
The fragrance it gives is of perfume you wear
Elegant like your dress are its petals in color

Piercing like your eyes it appears in looks
In your hand it shined like a star of hope
Soothing like love my heart it hooks
It ties my soul with aroma’s rope

It takes me to valleys of memories profound
The chirping of birds on a bright morning
Of enchanting symphony, of music, of sound
Clouds, rainbow and breeze of spring

Hundreds of captivating gone by days
Thousands of unspoken words, phrases
Looks and charms in overflowing measure
Vividly manifested on my coat collar

    what a beautiful poem. I sure love poems that use the flower rose in them! Say, I can't find you on my friends list and when I type in your name in facebook, I have no idea how to find you and see my poem posted at your page. Maybe you can ask a freind request of me. I am easy to find under my name. I am a picture with my cat in my arms. thanks, andrea

    Thanks Taha for your generous praise. You are very kind. Josh Malihabadi in one of his Ruba'yee says (translated in English by me): My verses are attired in the robes of gold/ Mysteries of rhythm my thoughts unfold/ words take the shape of my charming beloved/ It's the grace of my voice, lo and behold!
