A rose's scent

They say that a nose knows --
  But what does it know?

It knows a rose's scent, and many other a flower
  It knows the sweet breath of an early Spring shower 

It knows where there's fire or mortal danger 
  It knows who's familiar and who is a stranger

It knows the forest trail and the mountain's peak
  a fertile valley, buried treasure, the flow of a creek

It knows when a lover is brimming with desire
  the warmth of the sun, and something much higher

Thanks for the FAVE designation, Kim. It's always a surprise for me and makes my day as well. Best wishes, Gershon

For some odd reason, the first time I read this I was convinced it was a monorhyme. I think this is because of the wonderful rhythm of it. Well done indeed! I imagine school is called off in Chicagoland today! We do not go here either.
