Petals of the White Rose

Dreaming by the morning moon
protected in a tight cocoon
so pale in the gloom
Petals of the white rose

Stretching at the sun light smiles
reflecting on its dew drop tiles
a glow thatís seen for miles
The waking of the white rose

Delicate as the summer breeze
pearly white of royal genes
a queen within the garden green
the blooming of the white rose

Soft as love you give it when
hearts should touch a frail friend
before the gift of life might end
The message of the white rose

As we cry these tender woes
and say goodbye to them we know
they'll fly wherever spirits go  
On petals of a soft white rose.

Parker (c) Feb 13, 2000

Parker- Breathtakingly lovely !

You have held in your hand
the beauty of the white, white rose
and in your heart a sorrow.
One will n'er bloom again,
and one will bloom tomorrow.

Something so lovely from the garden,
carrying freshness on it's bloom.
Sadly given to one in repose ...
the petals of the white, white rose.

Sent with spirits to that land
where nevermore we hold their hand.
Landing softly, I would suppose,
the petals of the white, white rose.

~*Marge*~

Poet deVine, thank you, I was hoping it would have a pleasing and pretty image.

INclan, thank you. The progressing through time was luck.

Corinne, No, But I'm happy and I have friends. Though sometimes I'll look into stars at night and an image will come to mine.  

devina, thank you sweet. I'm not up on all the short forms or symbols here, but
what does @~~'~~,~~  mean.

Marge, thank you so much for that poem.
... if there is a flower on this earth
that smells of life with its very birth
Its just a dream, if you want to know,
cause none can beat the blooming rose.

James, this is beautiful. Your poems have a way of touching my heart, oh to find a man that's half as romantic *sigh*  
I have a star up there named "Julie's hopes and dreams" you are welcome to wish on it!! I'll do my best!
