THE COLOR OF ROSES

Yellow for friendship, joy, and delight;
Thornless or deep wine- love at first sight.


Coral shouts volumes of longing so new;

Pale peach sees modesty always in view.

Orange ignites with enthusiastic desire;

Pink says thank you, how much you’re admired.


White is heavenly, innocence, and pure;
Lavender is enchantment, yet can be secure.

Blue is for mystery, or an unreachable dream;
Dark red, for unconscious beauty, or so it would seem.

Red and yellow together show jovial cheer;

Red and white bonded signify unity shared.

Black, not often given, still says farewell;
BUT Red remains the favorite - true love, it always tells!
