Romance of Rose and Star

The shinning sun, who warmly glows,
Doth send his ray to court the rose.

And enamored with her velvet way,
He proffers her the gift of day.

Then adds a string of dawn and dew,
In tribute to her crimson hue.

Thus blushing in her lovely way,
The rose invites the sun to stay.

The sun then smiling, with a gleam,
Bestows to her a precious beam--

That she may wed, though from afar,
This charming and enchanted star.

M ;-)

Tired of you? Hardly. No, it's an honor having you drop by and comment--kinda like when the Superintendent swings by and pays the lowly teacher some measure of praise. So, visit, soup, the more the better. Don't you know...you're royalty--princess of Soupland :) Thanks again for the contest, and for all the time you invest. Kudos and big hugs...Mel

Hey man, thank you! Well, it hit me, what a powerful, life-affirming relationship goes on daily--and too often unnoticed. Maybe that's best as they're on their honeymoon! Thanks again, Tim...:-)

In a swoon...hey, call the paramedics :) I grew-up with three older sisters, and my mother told me to be nice--and so it goes. My sisters never swooned, though. Here's an idea, cuz. Put the Merrill back in with a hyphen! Has a ring to it and would make you famous...:-)
