|Beautiful from beginning to end, but this particular stanza
just took my breath away:
"Facets of a jewel may gleam
with brilliance I suppose
but none possess a beauty fair
and gentle as my rose."
Such as this is why I love poetry!

|Do you go to Gem shows? or are you a dealer in sapphires and other precious stones? That's not only why I like your poem: I admire your flow of rhymes, the refrain of your rose, the relationship of gemstones and flowers, both found in the earth, and the picture -- so cool! Keep writing, Paul.|

|What a lucky rose!! This deeply romantic and rhythmically penned
ode is very refreshing in a day when Cynicism seems so close to taking
over. As for flowers, surely the rose is queen. The perfect metaphor!! Bless you for caring so deeply. Sharing this wonderful rose!!! 'Pea' <3
