Ooh la la, the rose, coronate her beauty. Her ruffled scent, her hues, dare not refuse. When petals red, like strawberry-fruity, and lovey-dovey white, one must persue. Persistent veil of mist will kiss one’s soul, will kill one’s love for any forthright bud. She’s no petulant child, a fine trompe l’oiel. Commands perfume’d ascent of pulse, life’s blood. Beneath the fray, a thorn’d adversary will snag the jugular of swivel-head. Her red pursed lips, dove-skin, a bit scary. Don’t be tempted to find another’s bed. She stands ten feet tall-er than uncut weeds. She possesses a prowess set that leads. 3/14/2021
