A Pretty Red Rose

My lover sent me a pretty red rose,
Knowing it is my favorite bloom. 
He is the most considerate of beaus.

I held it with its fragrance to my nose.
The lovely scent seemed to fill up the room.
My lover sent me a pretty red rose.

A slow sniff tingled me from head to toes.
Petals are perfect, there's no need to groom.
He is the most considerate of beaus.

I love the gorgeous flower that he chose.
It truly makes my lovesick heart go boom.
My lover sent me a pretty red rose.

I dream of him and rose when my eyes close.
My rose will comfort me when troubles loom
He is the most considerate of beaus.

I pinned it to the collar of my clothes,
The rose so red it penetrates the gloom.
My lover sent me a pretty red rose.
He is the most considerate of beaus.

    Nice work Joyce...just a suggestion--you may need to add another stanza to make this a complete Villanelle -- thanks mm
