Roses

Spread the love

english-rose-garden-wallpaper-ogtttncn

A country house nearby;
Its fence lined with roses.
Its elegant front door,
An invitation proposes.

Whilst passing through the house;
Hand in hand with Carrie.
Upon asking the address,
Looking coy and wary.

Alas! Join thee hands,
In the dew coming coldly.
Thee turn to go up front,
Knock the door boldly.

Their breath coming fast;
Hands both trembling.
There when the mistress comes,
Impetuous and scrambling.

Pray, hwa art thou?
Thee lass thus proposes;
Its season of Spring,
And two come for roses.

Alas! chuckling little much;
To hwa thee supposes.
Thy grants us by kindness,
The boon of her roses.

    How fun! I really thought a ghost or witch was going to pop out, but so much the better that these brave girls got to take a way a bouquet of roses. I have a wild rose hedge in my backyard–it’s actually the neighbor’s, so I’m at their whim in terms of pruning the thing, sadly–it’s SO crazy/wild when all that pink explodes. If some bold lasses asked me for a cutting, I’d oblige for sure!
    Love your style in this poem too. Keep this voice coming!

    1. adashofsunny says:

    I smile when I see that longing for those roses.. such sweetness and innocence and with those archaic words.. like a collaboration between Shakespeare and Lewis Carol almost.

    So much lured by the rose’s beauty one couldn’t help but brave oneself to ask. It was the right thing to do! Great Olde English lines Sanaa!

  12. Jim says:

    Very generous lady you wrote of, Sanaa. I am not sure how it is where you are but here it seems that the more rural the person the more hospitable, in general.

    1. adashofsunny says:

      Hello Jim,

      Thanks for stopping by, generally people from rural areas are kind. But it depends from person to person.
      It all adds up to your upbringing I suppose 🙂
      Glad you liked my poem! Highly appreciated 😀

    Roses beckon like Sirens
    inhale my fragrance.
    Drink deep of my beauty
    resist you cannot…
    wonderful prose Sanaa

      Hi Leslie,

      Thank you so much! So glad you liked it 😀
      Highly appreciated!

  20. Wow, Sanaa, I loved this. The use of archaic language seems to go hand in hand with the classic roses. “Hwa” is a new one for me. I love language, so the chance to see something new is always welcome. Felt like Chaucer! Amy

    1. adashofsunny says:

      Hello Amy,

      Thanks for the huge compliment! Hope I can match up to Chaucer! 🙂
      Glad you liked it! Highly appreciated 🙂
