A White Rose by John Boyle O’Reilly

A White Rose

THE red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips

  1. The roses are stunning as your poetry. If love were a flower I think it would be a rose. Thank you for sharing and liking my poetry. “Do I love you” is one on my favorites. Just vintage red roses really old school. Hugz
