About the Poem
I had a vision of this Rose in 1992, I wrote two verses and a few ideas for the ending. Now Feb 13, 2000 it all came clear to me, and its true to the original with the two verses intact and the ending honored.
Petals Of The White Rose
|by James Haley|
|Dreaming by the morning moon
protected in a tight cocoon
so pale in the gloom
Petals of the white rose
Stretching at the sun light smiles
reflecting on its dew drop tiles
a glow that's seen for miles
The waking of the white rose
Delicate as the summer breeze
pearly white of royal genes
a queen within the garden green
the blooming of the white rose
Soft as love you give it when
hearts should touch a frail friend
before the gift of life might end
The message of the white rose
As we cry these tender woes
and say goodbye to them we know
they'll fly wherever spirits go
On petals of a soft white rose.
