Mine eyes see beauty which is untold.
Ever before when I gaze upon thee..
If only you were in my garden of the roses.
There is none as fair as thee, thy
Beauty blindeth mine eyes, thy aroma
Is a sweet savor unto my soul.

Shall I then being the Keeper of the Roses?
Pluck thee from thy dwelling place?
Nay I say unto thee for if I do this thing,
All that dwell with thee shall surely
Be saddened by thy absence.

Though my Heart says pluck thy rose,
Smell the sweet fragrance there of,
Caress its delicate petals with thy hand.
Shall not this excite the very essence of thy soul?
Nay be cruel not mine heart for ye know,
The rose we speak of, excites mine heart,
Just gazing upon its magnificence sets my heart a flame.

Ya I say unto thee oh elegant rose,
If I were thine keeper, for love ye would want not,
If ye should have tears mine tears of joy shall
Wash them away, the glow of mine face shall be thy light.
My breath shall be the air that giveth thee life.
Oh sensuous rose how can I tell thee of the fullness
My heart would know if in my garden ye dwelled.

Very beautifully written. Reminds me of some of the classics in it's style. Welcome to the group!!

A sequel stands beyond,
Invisable as music,
But positive as sound."
~Emily Dickinson
