To A Rose

Sometimes I compose a poem and, having done so conclude that it is, in fact 2 (separate) compositions.

Yesterday I composed “To Flowers that, In Springtime Bud”, https://kmorrispoet.com/2019/11/30/to-flowers-that-in-springtime-bud/. It consisted of 2 stanzas, however I posted here only the second of these with the title “To Flowers that, In Springtime Bud”. Today I am posting the first stanza which is, as I say above, an entirely separate poem.

What the poet thinks is, of course, not necessarily the same as his readers, so do please feel free to comment if you disagree with my interpretation of the matter.

‘Tis a fine
Thing
To see the spring
Divine,
And compose
A poem, to a rose,
That she
Will never see.

To Flowers that, in Springtime Bud

To flowers that, in springtime
Bud,
Would that I could
By this rhyme,
Spoken
By me,
Cause thee
To open.
But thine sweet scent,
Would soon be spent.
