a rose from a friend's garden...


The Rose Family

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose -
But were always a rose.

Beautiful pic! The rose is so lovely and the poem is just amazing! Robert Frost is one of my favourites having studied his poetry with an American teacher from New York at Faculdade de Letras in Porto. Great post! bjs
