Wordless With Roses
There is a rose in many a poem
though no words can capture
the startlement of such a beauty
lavished on some olden wall as though
fairy-chosen to hold all who can see
to a ransom of dreams. We cannot say
how the heart stops, tears appear,
passions pulse, but for a moment all meaning
True love, true harmony, true surrender,
Katherine L. Gordon.
