Sweeter than a Rose? – A thoughtful poem.

 

 

 

IMG_3738

I sit in quiet contemplation and I suppose,

That nothing can surpass the beauty of the Rose.

But can it’s showy beauty really match, however

those random acts of kindness in some sweet endeavour,

It’s a simple loving message that gives us thoughtful pause

An offer of support, some unexpected shopping left at doors

Those friends who send us texts and we talk to on the phone

Dispels the notion that no-one cares, we are not alone.

So now I’ve thought of it so carefully, I can now assume

that there are more beautiful things than a flower in full bloom

and ‘though it’s true a Rose would smell as sweet with another name,

Consider too, when all this trouble’s over, will we ever be the same?

Amelia Rose’s Day – a little poem.

 

 

 

Dear Little Amelia Rose,

Tomorrow is your day

You’ll be the envy of all your friends,

But not in a jealous way.

You’ll have to sacrifice your usual fun,

To stay so neat and glistening,

Because scuffed knees are just not done,

When at your Christening.
