Free Verse...

Promise of a Rose
A moment of promise comes
to those who take time
to stop and smell the roses
Heard is this old phrase
once or twice, but still
a promising thought
Petals fragrant and soft
of pure hues delights those
who pursue its delicate form
The rose is full of romance
for many lovers for its beauty
shall flourish - until it dies
Rhoda Galgiani
