""A Single Rose"

A Poem by Valentine

 

    "A Single Rose"

 

     So much beauty,

in one single rose;

     Petals cut perfect,

sweet effervesence flows.

     For many...it takes,

a massive bouquet;

     For a lover to speak,

his ..."I love you"...today.

     But one single flower,

that comes picked by you;

     Speaks more words to this heart,

than a dozen could do.

/"/"A Single Rose/"
Hi there Valentine,
A direct message is not missed in the simple expression of a hand of love extended. Red Rose is the one in my mind's eye as your poem I read.
"Petals cut perfect,
Sweet effervescence flows.
For many...it takes,
a massive bouquet;"
When, many years ago my husband first tried to get my attention it was with a single red rose and a sprig of baby's breath with a little poem on the card. Iv'e never forgotten his expression.
A world of meaning behind a single rose. Also the very fragrance is so clean and stirring to a person's being, just like true love.
Your poem was just what I needed this morning.
Thank you,
Kathy

As ever, a nice piece of lyric from Valentine. I could have done, though, without the speech marks in the title, but I know, I am an old pedant !

My mother was the original Valentine, I prefer to use her style now that I have lost her. Kathie
Valentine and roses go together like salt and pepper.
