A Yellow Rose
A yellow rose to me is like no other, nor can it be.
You told me of your hidden yellow rose before ever we
met and I thought then it something special you and I would share.
We did, and now they must flourish in bouquets and in your hair.
Their yellow brightness calls out exuberant and happy cheer
and their perfume never fails to invoke images of you, dear
While every rose is special, our shared preferance stands out clear.
Of course, it’s only because of you, that much I clearly see,
that yellow was promoted in my mind such that I’m aware
that all is incidental to the fact that your love is here.
