hommage à la rose

Spread the love

Through the dark and through the cold
Beneath the turf and beneath the mould
Pure as deep vermilion of rose
She chose to bring belief to those
🌹
What once seemed futile within her reach
Clamped round in hands as soft as peach
She chose to bring belief to those
Pure as deep vermilion of rose
🌹
Her eyes they gazed upon so bold
She wished not silver nor wished she gold
Pure as deep vermilion of rose
She chose to bring belief to those
🌹
Her mind not brood nor spoke of woe
Though she pelt through rain and snow
She chose to bring belief to those
Pure as deep vermilion of rose
🌹
She rustled like leaves from coast to coast
Long after day had drawn to close
Pure as deep vermilion of rose
She chose to bring belief to those
🌹
Oh! many her tales in rhyme and prose
She cares not wind which way it blows
She chose to bring belief to those
Pure as deep vermilion of rose

Form: Mirrored Refrain

  1. It is a real honor to be considered as one of your close friends. Thank you so much for your beautiful words. I still feel chills 😀

  2. Fantastic, Sanaa! The refrain works like a charm, me thinks. This lady is a force of nature. Nothing can touch this woman, and her perseverance through hot and cold and more makes me (and probably everyone else) cheer for her and those she favors.
