Lovely Rose, Queen of Fragrance

Queen of fragrance, lovely rose,
The beauties of they leaves disclose!

The winter's past, the tempests fly,
Soft gales breathe gently through the sky;

The lark's sweet warbling on the wing
Salutes the gay return of spring:

The silver dews, the vernal showers,
Call forth a bloomy waste of flowers;

The joyous fields, the shady woods,
Are cloth'd with green, or swell with buds;

They hast thy beauties to disclose,
Queen of fragrance, lovely rose!

Poem by William Broome
Roses from my garden


  1. The pictures are so vivid - I could smell them as I read the poem!!! Thanks for the cheery post!

  2. Beautiful...
    I can almost smell them.

  3. Are these your roses? They are stunning! Enjoy! :)

  4. They are? All of them? Wow. What a splendid array of colors you have. Some of them are so perfect, they don't look real.

  5. OMG, La Tea Dah. Those roses are spectacular! What a fabulous job you did on the photos, too. Wowsers. Beautiful. Susan
