Love and Roses

"The Rose of Love"


Love is like a fragile rose


With nurturing, it blooms and grows


Treat it with respect and care-


You will surely find it there.


Shower it with words of praise.


Warm it with soft loving rays.


Water it with tenderness.


Gently prune it with finesse.


Shade it from the wind and rain


Shelter it from grief and pain.


Plant around it ferns of beauty.


Honor it with upheld duty.


Lift love's fragrance to your nose.


Savor, cherish, KEEP love's rose.


As published in Tears of Fire anthology.

Can I republish it on this web site
www.onelovesouthernafrica.org as part of the poetry collection I'm creating? It fits the theme. Payment would be a OneLove T-Shirt.

Dear Damaria,

Thank you for visiting my site. I would love to engage in dialogue about this offer with you.

I visited your pages as well and was impressed.
