THE SOUNDS OF A ROSE The Red Rose speaks softly with velvety smoothness, it beckons me come, hear my song of gladness as I sing a lullaby The Yellow Rose has a sound of authority beware the thorns of life as you are pricked by unforeseen events tread carefully lest you stumble and fall The Pink Rose is the rose of love shared it sighs gently like a lover caressed it glistens with dewdrops like tears of bliss and seeks to be lovingly cared for The Purple Rose is a rose easily bruised its delicate nature makes it vulnerable the aroma it creates is sensuous, yet innocent treat it with care lest you crush its tender petals love it with a certain purity and it will be yours forever The White Rose is the symbol of purity the voice is that of compassion as it pleads with all who see it be ye kind one to another The Black Rose speaks in tones of finality as it coaxes one on their death bed come to me on your journey to eternity where will you spend eternity is his question Embrace the sounds of the rose when each comes your way let them engulf you in the special manner yes, embrace the sounds of the rose

Hello Curtis Moorman, the rose bush has orange blooms! Do they turn into roses later? I was just wondering. You look good for your age. Merry Christmas.Enjoy your day my friend.

I have a rose bush in my yard that belonged to my deceased mother-in-law. It is approximately 92 years old and has orange blooms. I hope it out lives me, and I will be 77 on St. Patrick's Day, 2020.

Brooklyn, you are so gracious and I am so appreciative. If you had to choose your color, which rose would you be?

It's a pleasant thought to imagine them all talking to us . We could say they have fragrant voices! Very nice, my friend.

Thank you, Mike! That is quite a compliment and I appreciate your response. I actually wrote it in 2012, but it is still around and commented on.

^WW^ your kindness to this old 'jigger' is overwhelming. I appreciate your support because it lifts my spirits and makes me want to do an Irish jig or twist the night away. Back at you on the Happy Holidays my friend. I am pleased that Soup has allowed me to gather a group of people that I can call friend. The list is growing, but you have been on it since its inception. I admire your poetic nature and have learned much from you. Thanks, and Merry Christmas!

That's what I like about you Angel --- you say it right up front. I like carnations too, but have always been partial to roses. And, yes, I had hoped someone would see how sensual that description of the purple rose is. I'm so very glad it was you. That makes it all the better!
