Rose II

by Jem Croucher
There's a rose in our garden
just by the front wall
which catches attention
to one and yes, all
as people will pause
to give it a smell
for its fragrance is lovely
as they can just tell

By any other name

by Jem Croucher

“A rose by any other name
would smell as sweet” as this
that grows within our garden
every year to bring us bliss

The Bard of Stratford knew a thing
or two about his writing
and I’m not pretending for a mo
this poem’s so exciting

But those words he penned for Romeo
and Juliet somehow
remind me of this rose I see
so I’ll pay homage now

Rose is a rose
By any other name

Her hand of wonder covered

the flower of England’s story

Rain rests so lightly

Wild Rose

by Jem Croucher

By a first morning light
in the sunshine out here
I took a walk in the woods
whilst the skies were still clear
and there in the hedgerow
where late hawthorn grows
I found the delicate pink
of a lovely wild rose

Many Happy Returns

by Jem Croucher

Back when it was purchased
with its buds not yet in bloom
I thought I’d save a picture
of it for the first of June
And now that day has come
and the summertime is here
I’m really pleased I waited
as its beauty is now clear

Goes in the Rose

by 50djohnson

Poetry challenge: tongue twister poem.


My nose aglow knows if in the rose below it goes and froze and goes and blows flowing, blowing, growing shows my glowing nose not to “goes” in the rose!

Happy Mother’s Day

by Jem Croucher

Version 2

An early rose on Mother’s Day
appropriately there
exuding beauty in its form
combined with love to share
Fragrance subtle, petals frail
A heart concealed, yet strong
with influence and calming
for an early springtime song
