Rose

O' Rose,
my heart once dipped in
thy fount of beauty,
you were there,
beautiful and bare
in your fortified heaven,
and, woe the day
I felt your face upon my palm.

Aww, thanks, Tilly! It felt so good to write, and I was truly hoping it would carry on to someone else. It makes me smile what you said.

What a truly lovely poem, Jimmy. Every single word you've chosen is just perfect. I love 'in your fortified heaven' and 'woe the day I felt your face upon my palm.' Such subtlety. One of my absolute favourites.
