The Fairest of All the Roses

The fairest of all the roses in the walled garden’s afternoon hush, this blossom delicately poses, making the other blooms blush, In the walled garden’s afternoon hush, while standing enticingly making the other blooms blush, is a beauty gazing at me. While standing enticingly, with her soft upswept auburn hair, is a beauty gazing at me. She answers this lonely man’s prayer! With soft upswept auburn hair; in her long flowing gown of white, she answers this lonely man’s prayer, making the garden grow bright. In her long flowing gown of white, this blossom delicately poses, making the garden grow bright - the fairest of all the roses! For the George Dunlop Leslie Poetry Contest of Isaiah Zerbst
The Picture is called "In Walled Garden" See at this link:

    An excellent pantoum which is not easy to compose from a gifted writer. Still working on getting one to flow so easily. Hope you win the contest.

    What a wonderful canvas you've painted here with your words.Well done.

  1. Date: 6/14/2013 1:17:00 AM

    The repetitiveness of the form you have chosen combined well with the beauty of your words, and paints an excellent tribute to a beautiful painting. Best of luck in the contest, Andrea! David

    Hi, my dear friend Andrea! Good afternoon here. I came back to read your poems & fave it esp. the last one. Thank you so much! This one is an excellent and amazing write of yours once again. I can vividly recall the beauty of the painting through your poem. A great dedication to one of the greatest painters indeed. I like his work very much. I'm also writing a poem for him now. Hope I can post it later. I'll love your poem. Thanks a lot! love much, Leonora

    "Oh Rose Marie I love you." Remember the song? Your fine poem reminds me of that tune Nelson Eddy sang to Jeanette McDonald. Great job comparing a rose to a woman - at least this is the under tow. Love, daver

    YOU ARE SUCH A GIFTED WRITER!!! And so cute TOOO! Making it such a double come for a visit with YOOOOOU! I really love this...and i love you TOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    did not need the picture Andrea, your visual attributes are perfection is your poetry

  1. Date: 6/7/2013 10:06:00 AM

    Your poem looks better than the picture you describe. I find the girl adorable, but with some imperfection in the posture. She looks slightly bent towards right. In your verses she is perfect!

    You are amazing, this one really captivates me and I have not even seen the painting.

    Oh, you chose a gorgeous painting for this one! And your poem definitely does it justice. I think Isaiah will love this! :)

    Wow!A great pantoum!!That must be a BLUE rose........

  1. Date: 6/7/2013 6:26:00 AM

    I'll have to go look at this it a bride?...or just a pretty lady in a white gown? A lonely man's prayer indeed. It seems to me you've captured, more importantly than the beauty...the fragile and delicate nature of her, like the rose. So Well Done!

  1. Date: 6/7/2013 12:28:00 AM

    You really captured the essence of the beautiful painting... judging from her expression I got, "Who... little ole me?", kinda vibe. One of the more exquisite pantoums I've read... best of luck to you!
