All Our Roses

All Our Roses

A Poem by MsJewel

                 art ~ Arthur Braginsky

 

 

               As autumn finds her golden fall

and winter winds begin to call

soon branches on the tallest trees

stand naked in the restless breeze

and vines begin to ache below

no shelter for a roses glow

 

Of springtime rain, of summer sun

of hearts that beat only for one

in shades of love ‘til seasons play

teasing tethers  in disarray

bound forever, now break away

senseless lover of yesterday

 

Should I cry or moan, I fear

we took our love for granted dear

and now the rose upon the vine

lies wilting in the hands of time

as what was new, now feels so old

fading slowly in autumn’s cold

 

Have all our roses blushed?

I`m impressed.
I haven`t read your 'rhythmic' poetry in a long-time. So, it`s good to read your words with such rhymes. Your art`s getting explored... in anew artistry which`s way good for your lovers. I find one thing `bout your stuffs that they`re written in every pose (creative-art/forms/formats) & well expressed with the worth of meaning as well as your talent through the very hues of your "rosy" words. Nice work.

I`d be writing you reviews in bulk (reading your beautiful stuffs) this day!

ok first off I knew within the first 2 lines that was going in my library, its an absolutely gorgeous poem, even the font colour is beautiful, its rhymes are sublime i was going to pick a favourite stanza then realized there is not one they are all brilliant, but 2 lines:
As autumn finds her golden fall
and winter winds begin to call
are just heart rending, I think Julie this is an all time classic of poetry and yes i am serious its astoundingly beautiful

you are welcome Julie, i was truly knocked out when i read this thank you :)
and the rose represents love...and now, winter is setting in, the rose has no shelter...
i have left it out in the autumn cold breezes...neglected it....and no amount of care can bring it back.

regrets in a really beautiful allegory here.

Thank you :) Julie
The changing of the seasons are always a great time to ask the question "Have all our roses blushed?" I thought that line was a wonderful way to conclude this poem about these lovers. The imagery of the changing seasons gives the sense that their time is at an end. Your lines about the roses on the vine worked particularly well to emphasize that idea.

On another note, I love your style. The way you deliver your words reminds me very much of some of the poets from the British Romantic Period. I'm so glad I stopped by to read you tonight.

What a lovely take on the dying of the autumn bushes and the bare trees of winter coming. I happy know you can write so well. I love your style you can tell. I read your writings well. That they make me feel so swell. Roses are my favorite in all the flowered world. They are bright and lively and give life to love and poetry. Most written about flower in the universe this the red red rose. You make it easy in pose.

As always Julie your word ring o much truth into my ears. The depth of emotion and imagery that spills onto a page in your writing bare the scars of torment and sadness.

I'm doing great - thanks so much!
A really good write. I loved the way you connected seasons to relationships. What I loved the most was the ease with which you switched from season(s) to love / relationship. These lines touched me the most -

"teasing tethers in disarray
bound forever, now break away
senseless lover of yesterday

Should I cry or moan, I fear
we took our love for granted dear
and now the rose upon the vine
lies wilting in the hands of time
as what was new, now feels so old
fading slowly in autumn’s cold"

The rhymes are in place, the flow is great. All in all, a really good write. :)

:( Once again your heart speaks volumes of false promises and hopes your sadness spill out in eve line it was written from deep within you Julie. It was a roller caster ride you did not want to know again. May all your sadness and tears be your yesterday now ? :) Larry

You are welcome Julie. :) Larry
I love how you connected seasons with love. In a relationship couples can have warm and cold moments together, unfortunately even violent storms may come along. All relationships change from season to season. Great work Ms. Jewel.
