A Perfect Rose

 

              "My dearest love," said he,
                    "I have a perfect Rose for thee."
               She,holding it from above,
                    so white and pure as a dove.
               Said, "dear one that's a nice lot,
                    but did you remember Forget Me Nots?
               If a flower should be mine,
                    I'd rather not have a clinging vine.
               Daisies are true,
                    but flimsy as you..
               Lillies are grand
                    but not long on hand.
               Gardenias are a sweet bunch
                    but do brown at the touch.
               Poppies are free
                    but can't always be.
               Roses, while rare, few,
                    and blessed by the dew
               Are horney and thorny
                         as love from you.
               Unless these posies are already bought,
                    I'd rather have bouquets of
                         Forget Me Nots."
