A Blue Rose Sings

Upon a deep blue rose, a scented song,
so delicate of harmony and sweet;
a melody, whose strains of love replete
I mused upon. To whom could it belong?
To claim such ballad ought have felt so wrong,
but I could ne’er its memory delete;
each note an echo in my own heart’s beat,
alluring me to drift and sing along.

Though how I wish I’d never found the rose
whose music stirred a restlessness in me;
where love once blossomed only sorrow grows
from searching for a love that cannot be,
and timelessly a tear-blue river flows
through heartache’s vale to discontentment’s sea.

Smile! "You Are Such A Tender & Beautiful Poetess" ~ "Such A Lovely Reflection of 'Your Priceless Soul I Believe, Dear Sharon Tideswell!!!'" ~ "Yes," is easy sometimes to get lost within the verses melodies of love another and, to somehow make them ones own....Smile, what an amazing You painted here--"What A Beautiful Blue Rose"--"My Love & Warmth to You Always," John! ~ Smile, "Have A Very Beautiful Evening Dear Lady," Bye!:) ~
