A. W. Nutter

Your beauty greets me in the morning
To your temptations none are immune
Like life, our time together is fleeting
So I visit daily to bask in your perfume

None can compare to your fragrance
Which enhances the hot summer air
Causing thoughts of love and romance
Enjoying the company of maidens fair

Occasionally your dark side emerges
Inflicting pain, by your barbs and thorns
It's always my fault, I hold no grudges
I should never grab you by your horn’s

No other flower has enjoyed the attention
Of poets and lovers, and those in mourning
The versatile Rose is used for every occasion
To express our deepest sentiments and feelings

    Hi Anthony :) I think you've captured the beauty and "dark" side of the rose quite well here-- I actually also read this in a way that it could be a metaphor...very wonderful write---just a thought maybe in L4S3, you can omit the apostrophe in "horns"? Just trying to help...An engaging write that I enjoyed reading-- nikko :)

    I like your style of writing. I find the line "I should never grab you by your horn’s" inspiring. "It is best to accept the blame rather than grab a angry woman by the horns Lol. Thanks for commenting on my poem.

    love the imagery and what lady would not be enthralled by a rose especially the way you describe them... enjoyed this WN

    With both thorns and great beauty, the rose is like many women. I think it is the thorns that allow us to realize that nothing is perfect. Quite a symbol of romance it has become, and love has its thorns as well. Very beautiful poem, Anthony. Love, Carolyn
