Love is a Rose

Love is a Rose

A Poem by The Golden Pen

I wrote this poem in 1999 under my maiden name. It has been published in my Poetry book, 'Melodies of the Heart' Copyright 2008 by Lulu Enterprises ISBN: 978-1452851631


Love is but a delicate rose 
That adorns the earth with grace. 
Love is an exotic flower, I suppose, 

A child of venus, dressed in chantilly lace; 

Love is  the offspring of desire, 
Bred of pure affection and true passion 
It is the soul's exquisite fire... 

Love shall never quite go out of fashion. 

Love is the sacred blood of matrimony. 
It flows constantly within its' veins, 
Like an everlasting sea. 
Love is enduring to the end, taking great pains 
yet with patience it is forgiving; 

Love is a precious rose 
Which blossoms slowly into one beauteous flower, 
And spreads its fragrance to enchant the nose 
With its' alluring scent and its mystique power. 

 Love is born of that maternal seed 

 Which transforms instantaneously 

 Into a beautiful flower of selfless deeds 
 Of kindness and wonder.

Wow! This is elegantly written, I aspire to one day write as lovely as you do.

Beautiful! Captures the very essence of the rose... also points out that love, like a rose, always grows... thorns? yes... leaves? yes... and of course, the flower itself. The flower comes and goes, but the "rose" is eternal. Nice flow in sentiment here. Thanks for sharing this.
