The Yellow Rose ~ poetry by Leesa Love

The Yellow Rose
Few things in life hold true to the beauty
Like the yellow rose
From the ground, it leaps up
In vibrant color it is determined
To proclaim its arrival, no it will not be silenced
A song bursts forth from its tiny bud
Sent to bless all those who will listen –
Still, the yellow rose pushes forward
To do more, to be more
A radiant light emerges from the darkness
Though its days be numbered on Earth
The yellow rose stands strong and tall
Through all of life’s storms to share
It’s beauty and elegance with all
Who will take the time to enjoy?
The fragrance of its worth
